France will impose sanctions on Google for missing privacy policy deadline

25 sec read

We always knew that Google was getting powerful enough to take on entire countries when it came to policy. Now, we’ll see where they land against the French.

Data protection officials in France said Friday that they will impose sanctions against Google after the firm missed a three-month deadline to adjust its privacy policy in that country.

CNIL, the French data protection agency, said in June that Google could face about $200,000 in fines if it did not alter its latest privacy policy by September to clarify how it collects and uses data. That action was based on a year-long investigation by CNIL on behalf of a consortium of European data protection officials after Google changed its policy in March 2012.
