Google fined in Europe – again

France's data protection authority has announced a $57 million fine against Google.

The French data protection authority, CNIL, has fined Google for ‘lack of transparency’ about how it handles user data to deliver personalised advertisements.

This is the first GDPR penalty for a US tech company.  The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation came into effect in 2018.

Google is deciding whether or not to appeal the decision.
