French Data Protection Authority Questions Google

Google Inc., the world’s largest Web-search provider, was questioned by France’s data protection authority to determine whether policies for mobile devices running its Android operating system and information collected using “cookies” violate European privacy rules. The National Commission for Computing and Civil Liberties, known by its French acronym as CNIL, asked Google to reply to the list of 69 questions on its privacy policy before April 5, according to a statement on the regulator’s website.
