Every Google web search could be stored for up to two years under a controversial new EU plan that has the backing of more than 300 Euro-MEPs.'Written Declaration 29' is intended to be used as an early warning system to stop paedophiles by logging what they look for using search engines.But civil liberty groups have hit out at the proposal which they say is a 'completely unjustifiable' intrusion into citizens' privacy.
The declaration, sponsored by an Italian and a Slovakian MEP, claims that it is 'essential to ensure that the internet continues to afford a high level of virtual democracy, which does not present any threat to women and children.'The motion asks for Directive 2006/24/EC to be extended to all web search engines, which would include Google, as part of a European early warning system for paedophiles.And it comes after Google admitted earlier this year that its Streetview cars had been inadvertently logging information about people’s online activity.The internet giant was rapped by the Information Commissioner’s Office which said Google had committed ‘a breach of people's personal data’.The Acronyms section of this website is powered by the Acronym Finder, the web's most comprehensive dictionary of acronyms, abbreviations and initialisms.The Acronym Finder allows users to decipher acronyms from a database of over 1,000,000 entries covering computers, technology, telecommunications, and the military.Dubbed the 'snoopers charter', the £2bn Internet Modernisation Programme was kicked into the long grass by Labour after anger from civil liberty campaigners.The coalition document released by the new Government last month was particularly vague about the programme and pledged only to 'end the storage of internet and email records without good reason'.European Commission vice-president Viviane Reding, who is trying to persuade EU nations to adopt a formal directive on the right to be forgotten, said the decision was a victory for privacy and would mean people could now ‘manage their data’.‘This is akin to marching into a library and forcing it to pulp books.The decision affects 500 million citizens and states that if search services don't comply, they face heavy fines.Google (pictured) began removing search results last month and said it has received more than 70,000 requests since it put a form online on May 30 Under Article 17, people who are mentioned in the data have the right to ‘obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data relating to them and the abstention from further dissemination of such data.'This particularly relates to data about the person when they were a child, when the data is no longer relevant or necessary for the purpose it was collected, the person who owns the content withdraws their consent, the storage period has expired, or if it was gathered illegally.
