Google Snubs Govt Over Data Requests

Google denies several requests from the South African government to obtain user data as well as requests to remove content

Google, the world’s largest search engine, has denied several requests from the South African government to obtain user data as well as requests to remove content.

In its transparency report, the company says that during January to June this year, it received seven requests from South Africa for user data, which it disregarded since no information was given.

It explains that, “We review each request to make sure that it complies with both the spirit and the letter of the law, and we may refuse to produce information or try to narrow the request in some cases.”
