Oracle Sued in Class Action Regarding Data Collection Methods


A class action lawsuit filed against Oracle in the Northern District of California claims that the tech giant has built a worldwide surveillance machine.

Oracle’s business practices, according to the complaint, “amount to a deliberate and purposeful surveillance of the general population via their digital and online existence,” tracking and logging the personal data of hundreds of millions of people. The complaint asserts that various goods and services sold to third parties use the information that has been gathered.

The complaint alleges that Oracle, without the consent of the three representatives, created electronic profiles of each of them based on their web browsing and other online activities and shared this personal data with third parties, such as advertisers.
