French Regulators Fine Google $57 Million for Violating GDPR

Google has been fined nearly $57 million by French regulators for violating Europe’s tough new data-privacy rules, marking the first major penalty brought against a U.S. tech giant since the region-wide regulations took effect last year. France’s top data-privacy agency, known as the CNIL, said that Google failed to fully disclose to users how their personal information is collected and what happens to it.
