Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Computer Science - IT-Security, grade: 2,1, New College Durham, language: English, abstract: The researcher chose the title 'A critical analysis of Google's behaviour towards its users in relation to the European Data Protection Act and the United States Safe Harbor Act' because Google is under the criticism of experts, institutions as well as governments of infringing several data protection acts. The purpose of the project is to analyse to what extent Google is infringing the European Data Protection Act of 12 July, 2002 and/or the United States Safe Harbor Act of July, 2000 (as well as any other EU and US laws that apply) and to analyse to what extent Google users are aware of the criticisms surrounding Google.
