Google admits that he gave the CIA private data of their European users  >:(

The CIA, the American intelligence agency, has in his possession for months private data of European citizens. And not because you have sent this to no special agent to the old continent. Account with a more powerful weapon: Internet. Google has been the first to admit that it has sent confidential information of their American European intelligence users to comply with the rules and the requirements of this country.
The data would have been sent to both the CIA and the NSA (National Security Agency), the national security agency. The first to admit it was a spokesperson for Google in Germany last week, to recognize that you as any company with headquarters in United States must provide the data required by the Government. Before the questions on the subject of this newspaper, the search engine referred yesterday another statement that returned to admit also that "like all companies that respect the legislation in force, Google complies with requests for information provided that these have legal validity". However, the company also insists that "we take very seriously the privacy of users and, provided that we receive a formal request, the first thing we do before accessing the same is to make sure that it complies with the legislation". In this regard, and to facilitate the transparency, the search engine last year launched tool Transparency Report, which shows how many requests for data users and the type of information requested from Governments.
The basic problem is known as used USA Patriot Act, which obliges all American companies to make any kind of information, but skip the laws of the territory in which they are operating. The European Union still has not ruled on the matter, but it is very likely end up doing so and to take steps to safeguard the interests of its citizens to agree also with existing data protection laws.

A widely criticized law

The objective of the USA Patriot Act or Patriot Act according to its Spanish translation, it was approved in 2001 following the attacks of September 11 and its objective is to expand the capacity of State control in order to combat terrorism, improving the capacity of various us security agencies to coordinate them and give them greater powers of surveillance against possible offences. It is a law that has been sharply criticized by various agencies and organizations of human rights, due to the restriction of freedoms and constitutional guarantees has meant for the people, both American and foreign, and who can now get a focus of conflict with the European authorities.
In July Microsoft first warned of the situation, revealing that the United States and its intelligence agencies could access data hosted in the cloud of American firms operating in Europe. The private data of any user could be "consulted" at any time without requiring that individuals be notified. This is not, in any case, the first time that Google has problems with the data privacy, after having been reported in several countries for the collection of information with its Street View program.

People just have to take care of what they put on the internet... I see so many people exposing their life on facebook with photos, details, etc... oh can we be so ignorant ? The fault is not on Google, or CIA, the fault is on people who think internet is private, it's not, internet was created by companies and for the interest of the companies, so why put all your life on it ? [/color]Would you expose your life on the street or at work ? That's the same with "social" networks.And the CIA is afraid of internet, because, like what we're doing here, people can take a lot of infos and truth, that it's not on TV. So the CIA, controlled by "Illuminatis" (don't like this word but to describe powerfull people it's good), is afraid of that because they don't want people to be enlighted.America is an Empire, like UK, France or Roma were before.UK, France and Roma controlled territories using war, violence.... USA control the world using medias, controlling international institutions and creating the "European Union" which is totally under american interests. France is beeing destroyed because of the UE, one day we will exit of this and regain our power. Germany is trying to do this by the way.
