Google fined by France

The CNIL’s restricted committee imposes a financial penalty of 50 Million euros against GOOGLE LLC because it agrees with complaints brought by activists: user consent is insufficient.

Under the GDPR, all companies, including tech giants like Google, must give users clear and comprehensive information about the data they collect from them. They must also give control to users and provide simple tools so that users can consent to having their personal information used. Opt-in instead of opt-out. According to the French regulator, Google failed on both accounts.
