Prosecutors say Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed Germanwings flight A320 last week

Germany has some of the strictest privacy laws in the world, the Telegraph notes, pointing out Germanwings parent company Lufthansa has claimed it was powerless to know the details of Lubitz’s medical history, as it was revealed he had received treatment for suicidal tendencies several years ago.

It’s website states people can request further blurring of a specific image, including: “We will blur the entire car, house, or person when a user makes this request for additional blurring. Users can also request the removal of images that feature inappropriate content (for example: nudity or violence.)"

Vocative writes: “Germans, however, have a contentious history with the search giant over privacy. In 2010, after government officials expressed concerns, Google offered Germans the opportunity to opt out of its Maps feature, saying that the company was ‘obeying local privacy laws’. At the time about 250,000 Germans took Google up on the other.”
