Brave Privacy Browser Going After Google

The guys over at the Brave browser, are looking to pull the EU's GDPR strings and cut into the way Google works. Brave is telling us that Google is violating the GDPR rules for how personal data is collected and processed in that it is not properly secure, and is also being used without authorization among other things. The gist of it is that Brave says Google is collecting much more personal data than it should be legally and then being sold. Information such as sexuality, ethnicity, and political opinions are being auctioned off to the highest bidder...allegedly.

The complaint argues that when a person visits a website, intimate personal data that describe them and what they are doing online is broadcast to tens or hundreds of companies without their knowledge in order to auction and place ads.
