France data protection watchdog fines Google $57 million under the GDPR

France’s data protection watchdog fined Alphabet’s Google 50 million euros ($57 million) on Monday for breaching European Union online privacy rules, the biggest such penalty levied against a U.S. tech giant. A French regulator accused Google of lacking transparency and clarity in the way it informs users about its handling of personal data under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.
