Letter to Google relating to Google Glass

19.06.2013 - The Internet corporation Google is currently testing the «Google Glass» computer eyeglasses. These spectacles, equipped with cameras, speakers and Internet access, raise issues as to their potential consequences for the privacy and the personal rights of persons affected by their use. Data protection authorities in several countries, including the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner in Switzerland, have now sent a joint letter to Google requesting detailed information on the data protection aspects of the project.
