Google has been in some hot water after it collected some sensitive data while working on its Street View service. There is some good news for the search giant, though, as the Federal Trade Commission has dropped the investigation into the matter in the US. The FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection wrote Google a formal letter stating that it’s satisfied with Google’s actions to fix the situation and also appoint a director of privacy. This doesn’t affect earlier restrictions placed upon Google such as Italy’s requirement that Google notify folks a few days in advance before its Street View vehicles went around.
