The Korean Herald reports that the Korea’s Communications Commission (KCC) has opened an investigation into Google’s rollout of its new privacy policy in that country.  The investigation reportedly will focus on whether the company has received sufficient consent to the changes to Google’s existing policy and whether Google is collecting more data than is required to provide its services. 

Google’s new privacy policy also faces scrutiny from regulators in the EU, where Google recently rejected a request by the Article 29 Working Party to “pause” the rollout of the policy, and in the U.S., where members of the House have sought additional information from the company on the meaning of the changes for consumers.
