Google’s appealing cookies

In March 2015, the Court of Appeal affirmed that three individuals resident in England could bring claims in England against US-based Google Inc for misuse of private information and breach of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), arising from Google cookies tracking their on-line behaviour without their knowledge or consent.

Google sought permission to appeal on three grounds and the Supreme Court granted permission to appeal on two of them but not the third.
