Google condamned, boomerang on CNIL's website
It's not every day you see such a message on the homepage of Google!
The Restricted National Commission on Computer and Freedom has condemned the Google company 150,000 euros fine for breaches of the law « informatique et libertés » (computer and freedom).
You can read this statement at the following address:http://www.cnil.fr/linstitution/missions/sanctionner/Google/”
So at the time we are writing this, if you click on the link, you get a 404 error. The same with their homepage. Maybe the “CNIL” site was saturated by the number of connections and had not expected so many visits from Google?
The announcement is expected to remain 48 hours on the home page by this judgement.
Note that Google was also ordered to pay a fine of € 150,000 (the maximum fine set by the CNIL), in other words a “drop” for the group that was a quarterly sales last year of nearly 14 billion $!
