CNIL judges Google & Facebook

Judgment for violation of Article 82 of the French Data Protection Act

The French data protection authority Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) has fined Google Ireland a total of 150 million euros and Facebook 60 million euros for “non-compliance with French legislation”.

The CNIL had found that users on the facebook.com, google.fr and youtube.com sites could not easily reject cookies: While cookies can be accepted with just one click, several clicks are required to reject cookies. This constitutes a violation of Article 82 of the French Data Protection Act.
