The Supreme Court has granted permission to Google to appeal a decision made by the Court of Appeal in relation to a dispute over user information received by Google whilst using the Apple Safari browser. The two granted grounds of appeal relate to the

incompatibility of section 13(2) of the UK Data Protection Act with Article 23 of Directive 95/46/EC and also whether it was correct to disapply s 13(2) on the grounds that it conflicts with Articles 7 and 8 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Section 13 of the Data Protection Act remains disapplied until the outcome of the appeal. 28-july-2015.html
