French Watchdog CNIL is Alphabet Inc, which provided US intelligence with access to data from French website users. Insisted on Google Analytics.

Regulators argued that there was a lack of sufficient means to guarantee data privacy rights under European Union regulation when transferring data between European and US statistics.

The French website manager responsible for the breach had one month to comply with EU regulations. CNIL has issued similar orders to other website operators.

Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Agency (FAS) has penalized Google for alleged violations of rules related to the suspension and blocking of YouTube video service accounts.

Watchdog will decide fines during an executive investigation, adding that Google’s actions have infringed on the interests of its users and restricted competition.

“”[The FAS] The rules associated with creating, suspending, blocking, and processing user content on YouTube turned out to be opaque, biased, and unpredictable, “says FAS.
