Google gets into France fined 100,000 euros “forgets law ‘




French privacy watchdog CNIL puts Google in a fine of 100,000 euros because the search engine company refuses to comply with the requirement to also implement non-European search engine the right to forget.

The CNIL will Google’s proposal geofiltering to apply for the ‘ right to be forgotten’ on inadequate. This Google wanted the IP address of someone searching on use not to show some results, namely those which someone from the same country objected to “forget requests.

This method would not protect the latter, says the CNIL, as acquaintances or relations with a non-French-ip-address and from outside the EU still see the results which objection is taken. In addition, the measure would be easy to circumvent. Google therefore the privacy authority commission has imposed a fine of 100,000 euros and once again determined to forget legitimate requests should be granted to all extensions of the search engine.

Google’s assertion that the removal restricts freedom of expression, according to the French authority incorrect since only links to pages from the results need to be removed if searched on the names of the complainant. Google has always stated that the CNIL would not have affected the French authority on what people see outside France. The company is appealing against the decision.
