The Foundation insists that Google fundamentally change its business practices. In addition, it demands financial compensation for all Dutch consumers who have been harmed by Google’s systematic violations of the law. To achieve these goals, the Foundation has joined forces with Consumentenbond.
The Foundation has invited Google to negotiate an appropriate collective resolution. Google informed the Foundation that, at this stage, it was not prepared to enter into discussions about a settlement that would satisfy the Foundation’s demands. Google indicated that it accepted that this would probably mean that the Foundation would soon initiate these proceedings. The Foundation and Consumentenbond’s joint press releases announcing the Action can be found here.
