5700万美元,谷歌收到GDPR法规发布后最大罚单

本周一,谷歌公司收到了一笔5700万美元的大额罚单,而开出罚单的则是法国国加数据保护委员会。

据《华尔街日报》报道,该委员会认为谷歌公司在收集用于定向广告的数据时,在获取用户许可方面做的还不够,违背了去年生效的《通用数据保护条例》(后文简称GDPR)。

根据这一规定,企业必须对如何收集和使用数据进行详尽解释,并征得消费者同意后才能进行数据收集。

据了解,本次罚款并未对谷歌公司造成太大的影响,不过该公司仍然已经开始就此事进行研究,希望进一步完善之后的数据收集和使用流程,争取符合GDPR的规定要求。

《华尔街日报》指出,这个5700万美元的罚单创下了GDPR生效以来的最高罚款记录,也会就此拉开更大规模数据监管的帷幕,帮助监管机构明确数据监管的各项维度和限制。

 

Alphabet Inc.’s Google was hit with a $57 million fine Monday (Jan. 21) by a French regulator, in what the Wall Street Journal reported is the largest penalty under the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) privacy law.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, France’s National Data Protection Commission fined Google, saying it didn’t do enough to get the consent of users when gathering data used for targeted advertising. It’s also one of the highest-profile regulator actions coming from GDPR which went into effect last year. Under the law, companies have to follow strict rules when it comes to protecting consumers’ data and privacy in Europe. One of the rules requires the companies to explain how data is being collected and used and seek the consent of the consumer to collect the data. While the fine won’t have a large impact on Google, it is the biggest penalty to be dealt to the firm by any of the European regulators that have authority to use GDPR to go after companies they don’t think are doing enough to protect the data or privacy of consumers.

“People expect high standards of transparency and control from us. We’re deeply committed to meeting those expectations and the consent requirements of the GDPR. We’re studying the decision to determine our next steps,” a Google spokesman told the Wall Street Journal.

The paper noted that the fine is probably the start of more to come as regulators step up enforcement under GDPR. They could also try to test the bounds of the new legislation, reported the Wall Street Journal. The French regulator’s ruling is centered on how Google made information available to consumers about the need for their consent to use data. The French National Data Protection Commission said Google ran afoul of rules requiring information about how it collects data to be transparent. Things such as data processing and data storage times weren’t available in the same place, requiring in some instances consumers to click five or six times to find it. The regulator also said Google didn’t get the necessary user consent for personalized ads.
