Arizona is getting nearly $327,000 in a multi-state settlement over data collected by Google for its Street View service.
Attorney General Tom Horne announced Wednesday that Arizona joined 37 other states and the District of Columbia in a $7 million agreement.
Horne said Arizona is getting the sixth-largest share of the settlement.
"This hard-fought settlement was the result of nearly two years of negotiation," Horne said. "It is a fair resolution of the states' complaints and it recognizes the privacy rights of individuals whose information was collected without their permission."
States argued that while Google vehicles drove through neighborhoods between 2008 and March 2010 taking photos for the mapping software, the company also collected data being transferred through unsecured wireless networks.
The settlement acknowledges that could have included internet browsing data or emails.
Google has since disabled the equipment that was collecting the data, and agreed to destroy the information as soon as possible.
Street View allows users to zoom in to ground level while browsing maps.
