A new technology that Google uses to track billions of credit card transactions is unsafe, overly intrusive, and possibly in violation of federal law, according to a complaint EPIC filed Monday with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

Google uses its SSM program to track whether consumers have converted online advertisements into in-store purchases.
