The tech giant hoped that France would forget its sins and let it do what it wants with EU data having been dashed recently. Local press confirm that Google will get a fine after it failed to comply with an order to alter the way user data is stored and used in order to conform to French privacy laws.
Industry observers agree that the company is in trouble with European laws in an antitrust case for allegedly breaking competition rules. Google recently submitted proposals to avoid fines in that case. In the meantime, in the United Kingdom, Google is finding itself on the back foot over its policy of refusing to pay tax which the government didn’t like at all.
