"Google breaks these promises billions of times every day," the suit then alleges.
The suit says its plaintiffs engaged Professor Christo Wilson, associate professor at Northeastern University's Khoury College of Computer Sciences, to help determine which entities receive Google real-time bidding data. "Professor Wilson identified 1.3 million separate publishers participating in Google's ad systems. Each of those publishers is a potential recipient of Google RTB [real-time bidding] Bidstream Data, including the personal information Google tells account holders it will not share," the lawsuit reads.
