GOOGLE LOSES ITS APPEAL ON THE GDPR VIOLATION IN FRANCE
As known, the France’s Data Protection Authority (“CNIL”) imposed a fine of € 50 million on Google on 21 January 2019 for the reason that Google failed to provide enough information to users about its data consent policies, and didn’t give them enough control over how their information is used.
Upon this penalty, Google appealed and claimed to the Conseil d’Etat that the CNIL does not have jurisdiction over Google’s European headquarters. However, apparently the claim Google asserted did not work and the Conseil d’État is expected to issue its final judgement next week.
