France hits Google with record €50mn fine over ‘forced consent’ data collection

The investigation uncovered two infractions of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which was approved in 2016.

They found that the company doesn’t provide easy access to information it collects from users and that the information they do provide is often incomprehensible.

This creates a situation where people are not able to manage how their information is being used, especially in relation to targeted ads.
