(Reuters) - Australia's consumer regulator said on Tuesday it has started court proceedings against Alphabet Inc's
"The ACCC (Australian Competition & Consumer Commission) claims that from at least January 2017, Google breached the Australian Consumer Law when it made on-screen representations on Android mobile phones and tablets...," the regulator said in a statement.
ACCC alleged that the tech giant misled consumers about the location data it collected or used when certain Google Account settings were enabled or disabled.
