The case, according to the BBC, centres around allegations that Google got round security settings on the Apple Safari browser and threw advertising cookies on people’s websites to advertise stuff.
Google said it wasn’t pleased with the court’s decision. It had attempted to get the courts to prevent peole suing it because it claims people didn’t suffer financially.
But the judges said that the allegations raise serious problems which do merit a trial.
They continued: “The case relates to the anxiety and distress this intrusion upon autonomy has caused. They concern what is alleged to have been the secret and blanket tracking and coalition of information.”
Google’s motto is it does no evil. It claims it hasn’t done anything wrong.
But the US Federal Trade Commission has already fined Google $40 million, while 38 US states also fined the search giant.
