Reuters reveals EU antitrust regulators say they are investigating Google's data collection

Reuters exclusively reported that EU antitrust regulators are investigating Google’s collection of data, suggesting the world’s most popular internet search engine remains in its sights despite record fines in recent years. Competition enforcers on both sides of the Atlantic are now looking into how dominant tech companies use and monetize data. A European Commission executive said it was seeking information on how and why Alphabet unit Google is collecting data, confirming a Reuters story the previous day.
