Google Hits Back at Snooping Claims

Google has issued a strong denial that it allows the US government to access its servers.

The internet giant said the government has no access, “not directly, or via a back door, or a so-called drop box”.

The Guardian claims the UK’s eavesdropping centre GCHQ has secretly gathered intelligence on Britons from the world’s largest internet companies.

GCHQ is to report to MPs within days over claims it accessed data through a US spy programme called Prism, reports the BBC.

Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee Committee (ISC) expects the report by Monday.

GCHQ said in a statement it operated to “a strict legal and policy framework”.

US spies have been accused of tapping into servers of nine US internet giants including Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and Google in a giant anti-terror sweep. All deny giving government agents access to servers.

Google’s Chief Legal Officer David Drummond said: “We cannot say this more clearly – the government does not have access to Google servers…It is quite wrong to insinuate otherwise.

“We provide user data to governments only in accordance with the law. Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process.”

The Guardian said it has obtained documents showing that Britain’s secret listening post had access to the Prism system, set up by America’s National Security Agency (NSA), since at least June 2010.
