Google vs. The GDPR: Tech Giant hit with Massive Fine over Digital Advertising
22nd January 2019
The French Data Protection Authority, the CNIL,has issued a record fine against Google of 50 million euros (£44m), but still far from the highest penalty possible under the GDPR, after finding that information provided by Google’s services lacked transparency, particularly around the collection of users’ consent. The decision serves as a warning to all organisations with online services, particularly those engaging in online advertising, on the standard of scrutiny into their Privacy by Design and consent mechanisms likely to be applied to them by Supervisory Authorities.
