Google to be fined in France
Google hoped that France would surrender and let it do what it likes with European data have been dashed this week.
According to CMO, Google is about to be slapped with a fine after it failed to comply with an order to alter how it stores and shares user data to conform to the nation's privacy laws.
France's privacy watchdog, the Commission Nationale de L'Informatique et des Libertes, said Google was ordered in June to comply with French data protection laws within three months.
Apparently Google, tearing a page from Charles de Gaulle's diplomacy book, simply shrugged and said "non".
Google insists that France's data protection laws did not apply to users of certain Google services in France.
