Four States to receive money from privacy rights settlement with Google


Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas are part of a privacy rights settlement with Google.

The settlement closes a joint investigation by attorneys general in about 39 states.

Google will pay $7 million to the states to settle the case.
