The Hellenic Data Protection Authority (DPA) published its 136/2013 Decision on Google Street View, based on follow up clarifications and information received by Google Inc., giving the green light for the provision of the service.

The service was in 2009 initially blocked by the DPA due to data privacy concerns. According to said Decision, Google must blur out faces and license plates of cars, while there will be a tool in place, which can be used by users in order to request such blurring, including blurring of house facades. Moreover, Google must inform the data subjects via the press and its website about the data processing in question.
