Privacy rights organization EPIC, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, has asked the Federal Trade Commission to see if Google is misleading consumers. This follows a breach in Google Docs on March 7, which was caused by a software bug that led users to inadvertently share some of their files with others. Google has since fixed the bug. EPIC's formal letter of complaint says that Google promises users their documents are stored securely and assures them that their documents, spreadsheets and presentations will remain private unless they publish these to the Web.

Nothing or noone is perfect in this life. Stuff happens. Google should not be punished for this incident. Problem has been fixed, so, what's the problem? The world is way to sue happy!

EPIC vs Google

I don't believe that Google should be reprimanded for this. If this really made people mad Microsoft would have been sued along time ago for bugs in their software and OS's. i think it is STUPID how EPIC thinks that it can actually force Googles hand like this. If the FCC has any brains at all they will send EPIC packing...

Should businesses and organizations require staff to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination before physically coming to work?
Yes -- At this point it makes good sense and will help stop the spread of the virus.
No -- It sets a bad precedent against personal privacy and civil liberties.
I'm Not Sure -- There are valid arguments for and against vaccine requirements.
