French GDPR Committee Fines Google $57M | Avast

The Commissione nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (CNIL) is an independent French committee dedicated to upholding its country’s commitment to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a new standard of EU consumer privacy protection which went into effect last year. The new regulations call for more transparency from data collectors in terms of how they use the data they collect, as well as clear consent from users, allowing their data to be used in such a way. The CNIL fined Google in French courts earlier today to pay 50 million euros ($57M) for not properly sharing information on how it collects user data.
