Sweden’s Administrative Court has ruled that Google’s standard contract with its Google Apps customers violates Sweden’s data security law.  This verdict upholds the decision of the Datainspektionen, the Swedish Data Inspection Board, that Salem Municipality’s agreement with Google gives the tech company too much power to use Swedish citizens’ personal data for its own purposes and to share it with third parties.  The local government of Salem will now have to make significant changes to its contract with Google to ensure that it satisfies the requirements of Sweden’s Personal Data Act.
