CNIL: Google Will Be Called Upon In ‘Coming Weeks’ For Privacy ActionBy: Chris Crum - February 28, 2013
Earlier this month, French privacy watchdog CNIL was pressing Google on privacy changes again, putting out a statement saying it was determined to act and pursue investigations.
At the time, Google shared the following statement (via TechCrunch):
Now, The Telegraph is reporting that CNIL said Google will be called to appear in “the coming weeks” and could face “repressive action” if failing to give “precise and effective” responses to its privacy recommendations.
In October, CNIL announced recommendations for clearer information for people regarding the policy, and for Google to give users more control over the combination of data from its various services.
Friday will mark one year since the new policy went into pace.
