NEW: EU Probes New Google Privacy Policy

BRUSSELS (AP) - The European Union's data protection authorities have asked Google to delay the rollout of its new privacy policy until they have verified that it doesn't break the bloc's data protection laws.

The chairman of the group of 27 national privacy regulators has written a letter to Google's CEO, Larry Page, informing him that a French regulator is now probing the new rules.

He asked Page to "pause" the rollout of the privacy policy until that investigation has been concluded.

The letter was written on Thursday and published on Friday.

Google unveiled its new privacy policy last week and it is due to come into force on March 1.

It regulates how Google uses the mass of personal data it collects from people using its search engine, email, maps and services.
