Google Settles Improper-Tracking Suit, Neb. to See Revenue

Posted: Updated:

Nebraska is set to see an increase in revenue.

Google will pay Nebraska more than $247,000 as part of a 17-million-dollar national settlement over consumer tracking.

State Attorney General Jon Bruning said Nebraska is one of 37 states and the District of Columbia to receive a portion of the settlement.

The settlement comes after allegations that the search-engine giant was improperly tracking data on safari web-browser even after some consumers had opted-out of the search tracking feature. Nebraska's share of the money will be deposited into the state settlement fund.
