Alphabet's (GOOGL, $2,446.61)Google faces EU competition investigation on ads policies
On Tuesday, the European Union announced that it has started an investigation into whether Alphabet’s Google has broken EU competition rules.
The European Commission is probing into whether Google is curbing competition by favoring its own online display advertising technology services in the ad-tech supply chain, to the extent of restricting access by third parties to user data for advertising purposes on websites and apps (while reserving such data for its own use).
EC will also study whether Google's policies on user tracking are in line with fair competition principles.
