For all those of you who are heading to Greece this European Summer, you can rest assure your parents will not get access to your location, atleast not through Google Street view that is.
The privacy watchdog has banned Google from gathering detailed, street-level images in Greece for a planned expansion of its panoramic Street View mapping service until the company provides additional privacy safeguards.
