google-privacy-france-2013-06-20-01.jpg

 

Google has been under the gun has been under the gun in the EU for a while now about its privacy policies, particularly in France, which is fairly hardcore about such matters. In fact, the nation's CNIL computer watchdog has just ordered Mountain View to change its practices or face an initial maximum fine of ?150,000 (around $200,000), followed by a penalty of up to ?300,000 for further non-compliance. Google has just three months to fall in line, and the French regulator's ruling could just be the beginning: it investigated the search giant at the EU parliament's behest, meaning nations like Italy, Spain and the UK could follow suit. For its part, Google -- which is no doubt very sensitive to such matters at the moment thanks to the NSA saga -- said it "respects European law" and will continue to work with French and EU authorities on the matter.

In the end they'll do just enough to get into compliance. They always do.

Their tax rate is probably over 100%.... This is France we're talking about. I wouldn't pay my taxes there either, ****ing crooks.

 

I'm starting to think governments are telling google to keep to privacy laws because they're collecting incriminating data on certain officials..... IT'S A CONSPIRACY!
