Allegedly, they are concerned that the purchase will provide Google with access to even more personal data. Both the ministry and the commission requested permission to investigate the deal.

Organizations such as the Center for Digital Democracy, Public Citizen, and Consumer Action, which monitor human rights in the digital age, are opposed to the deal. 

They believe that the takeover will strengthen the monopoly power of the Internet giant, which, thanks to its vast portfolio of Internet services, already knows more about consumers than any other company.
