The country’s Commission Nationale de l'Informatique (CNIL) is currently examining the new approach of the search giant to privacy on behalf of information protection regulators of the 27 EU member states in order to find out whether it complies with European legislation.
This all may end badly for the search giant if CNIL doesn’t like the new policy. The watchdog’s review could result in financial penalties or administrative sanctions for Google, of up to $382,200. In addition, other European regulators can also levy penalties that would push the bill up.
CNIL president claimed in an interview that the outfit wasn’t satisfied with the Google’s policy and set up this meeting to tell the search giant that it’s way out of order. The head of the outfit explained that she wanted to untangle the precise way that certain private information is being used for individual services, as well as examine what the benefit for Internet users really is.
According to the California-based search engine, this allows Google to better tailor search results and thus improve services for its users. However, the French reply that Internet users “aren’t allowed to opt out and any tailoring involved is gauche and hasn’t been seen in the country for several seasons”.
Google’s representatives are apparently confident that their privacy notices respected the requirements of EU information protection legislation. The suggested meeting can give the company another chance to put things into context and deliver the broader actions Google is going to take in order to protect its users’ privacy.

|$382,200,,,thats like 38 cents to google. I think google should rewrite and allow people to opt out, as the saying goes, but then you can opt out if you want anyway. Lets face it, social networks, google search engines, all of it is based on consumer spending and to encourage it. This is all about money nothing more, so go ahead and take your 38 cents from google,,,shit they just made it back, this very minute,,,,shit wait one more minute and they'll make it again, see my point.|

|I swear Extratorrent has the best news articles. It's like all the really important stuff with no BS stories I need not here. And you do a really good job at writing this stuff I may add. THANKS SAM!|
P.S. Extratorrent should create their own search engine, and i bet it would replace google.
