+ - Google fined by French Privacy regulator, notice to be published on homepage.

Submitted by L-One-L-One
L-One-L-One (173461) writes "Following similar decisions in Spain and the Netherlands, Google was fined today 150,000 euros by the French Data Protection authority for breaching data protection legislation. This sanction follows a long enquiry triggered by Google's decision to change its privacy policy in March 2012. The authority notably considers that the new policy "does not sufficiently inform its users of the conditions in which their personal data are processed, nor of the purposes of this processing", and that Google combines "all the data it collects about its users across all of its services without any legal basis". While the fine may be barely noticeable for Google, the authority requires the search giant to publish this decision on Google's French homepage, google.fr for 48 hours within the next 8 days."
