Google hit with £44m GDPR fine over ads

Google has been fined 50 million euros (£44m) by the French data regulator CNIL, for a breach of the EU's data protection rules.

CNIL said it had levied the record fine for “lack of transparency, inadequate information and lack of valid consent regarding ads personalisation”.

The regulator said it judged that people were “not sufficiently informed” about how Google collected data to personalise advertising. In a statement, Google said it was “studying the decision” to determine its next steps.

Complaints against Google were filed in May 2018 by two privacy rights groups: noyb and La Quadrature du Net (LQDN).
