Google has been fined 100 million euros in France for breaking adversiting Cookie policies

This is the lastest fine ever issued by the France watch dog. American retail Gaint "Amazon" some time back also paid 35 million Euros for breaking the very same rules.

CNIL said Google and French websites had not informed  vistors about cookies and the adversiting cookies where saved in their PC without their content.

 

The regulator said Both Google and Amazon failed to provide clear understandable information on how the online trackers would be used and how users of the French websites would deny the Cookies.

The tech gaints,have been given 3 months to change the banners they have on their websites

And if they would not listen they would be charged 100 000 euros every day until they day the charge is met.

Google also made a statement that they stand insolidality and provide upfront information  and clear control of internal data and above all , helpful products.

Today the France ePrivacy laws overlooks these efforts and is ignorant of the fact that French rules and regulations are not constant and forever evolving.

Amazon denied  with the CNIL decision.

We continuously update our privacy practices to ensure that we meet the evolving needs and expectations of customers and regulators and fully comply with all applicable laws in every country in which we operate," it said in a statement.
