In addition, Google represented that it is a member of an industry group called the Network Advertising Initiative, which requires members to adhere to its self-regulatory code of conduct, including disclosure of their data collection and use practices. Despite these promises, the FTC charged that Google placed advertising tracking cookies on consumers' computers, in many cases by circumventing the Safari browser's default cookie-blocking setting.
Google exploited an exception to the browser's default setting to place a temporary cookie from the DoubleClick domain. Because of the particular operation of the Safari browser, that initial temporary cookie opened the door to all cookies from the DoubleClick domain, including the Google advertising tracking cookie that Google had represented would be blocked from Safari browsers.
The FTC charged that Google's misrepresentations violated a settlement it reached with the agency in October 2011, which barred Google from among other things misrepresenting the extent to which consumers can exercise control over the collection of their information.
The earlier settlement resolved FTC charges that Google used deceptive tactics and violated its privacy promises when
it launched its social network, Google Buzz.
