Six European countries move against Google over privacy: France's Cnil


Authorities in six leading European countries have taken steps to force US Internet giant Google to comply with EU privacy rules, France's Cnil data protection agency said on Tuesday.

France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom "have launched actions on 2 April 2013 on the basis of the provisions laid down in their respective national legislation" to force Google to make changes to its privacy policy to bring it in line with European regulations, Cnil said in a statement.
