Google purging browsing data collected in Incognito Mode

Google said it would delete millions of records of users’ browsing activities as part of a settlement of a class-action lawsuit that alleged it tracked people without their knowledge.

The case, filed in 2020, alleged the Alphabet Inc. unit surreptitiously collected data from people using its popular Chrome web browser in a private “incognito” browsing mode.

Ja, not much use for that data when you can't use it to permanently track people.
 
Deleting the data, after they ha analyzed and mined the crap out of it, so basically they just free'ing up some disk space.

They still got all the results of the analysis and mining, stored safely.

Massive victory - not.
