UK: Google was in 'significant breach' of data law

British authorities say Google breached data protection laws when its Street View mapping service scooped up data from private wireless networks.
The Information Commissioner's Office says that the Internet search provider's data protection practices will be audited and that the company must promise to ensure that the breaches don't occur again.
Google Inc. will not be fined for the breach, although the office said Wednesday that the company, based in Mountainview, California, faces penalties if it refuses to comply with its instructions.
