Google has admitted that its Street View cars had “accidentally” collected data from unsecured wi-fi networks in more than 30 countries.
A Google representative has now been summoned to appear before a judge in Madrid on 4 October.
It is in response to a complaint by a privacy watchdog called Apedanica.
The Google representative has been summoned to explain what data was collected, how it was obtained and the number of people affected.
“We are working with the authorities in Spain to answer any questions they have,” said a spokesperson for Google.
