Friday 13th August 2010, 2:29PM BST.
GOOGLE Street View has agreed not to capture Wi-Fi data in the Bailiwick when it visits the islands in the next couple of weeks.
Following talks with Guernsey’s data protection commissioner, the Google team has said it will only collect images of Guernsey and Alderney.
The Bailiwick of Guernsey Data Protection Office has confirmed that any pictures taken will be transferred to the US where identifiable information such as faces and car number plates will be blurred.
Further information will be posted on www.gov.gg/dataprotection in due course.
