Google's size does not relieve it from GDPR responsibilities, though, and Brave's claim is that the search giant is not transparent about the purposes for which it collects data.

The privacy officer and his employer consider that Google's privacy policies are "hopelessly vague and unspecific", despite the GDPR requirement for specificity.

Ryan is asking the data protection commissions to require Google to provide "a full and complete list of the purposes for which his data has been collected and processed." He also proposes that Google's processing activities are audited.

It would indeed be very interesting to see all the details they collect about you, how they are used and who has access.
