French Officials Say EU Will Sanction Google Over Privacy

taz346 writes “French officials said on Monday that the EU intends to sanction Google after the Internet search giant failed to respond to concerns about its privacy policy. ‘At the end of a four-month delay accorded to Google to comply with the European data protection directive and to implement effectively (our) recommendations, no answer has been given,’ said France’s CNIL data protection agency. Google’s new policy, implemented in March 2012, allows it to track users over multiple sites. Users who sign in to Google services cannot opt out. CNIL said a working group would meet next week to begin work on ‘coercive actions which should be implemented before the summer’ against Google.”
