Dutch consumers may soon have the opportunity to join a class-action lawsuit against Google. The Consumentenbond and Stichting Bescherming Privacybelangen are demanding that the tech giant cease its collection and sale of consumer data without their consent. They are also calling for compensation to be paid to all Dutch users of Google. If Google does not comply, the matter will be taken to court.

The groups claim that Google collects data in a way that makes real consent impossible.
