Regulators in France have hit Google with a six-figure fine after finding the search giant didn't adequately protect the privacy of French users.
Says the commission: "[Google] does not sufficiently inform its users of the conditions in which their personal data are processed, nor of the purposes of this processing."
The CNIL goes on to say Google doesn't get permission to store cookies on user computers and doesn't have any legal basis for combining collected data across its services.
This is the latest in a string of EU complaints against Google's data practices.
This most recent fine might be unprecedented for the CNIL, but it's largely symbolic for a company the size of Google.
In the meantime, Google's statement on the matter suggests the company won't admit wrongdoing.
