Google has ‘taken reasonable steps’ to improve its privacy policies since its Street View mapping cars unlawfully captured data last year, the information commissioner said on Tuesday.

The internet giant vowed to improve how it handles users’ data in November, after the Information Commissioner’s Office ruled it committed a ‘significant breach’ of the data protection act when its mapping cars toured UK towns and cities. Josh Halliday/The Guardian.
