- Google confirmed on Wednesday that it will appeal its recent $57 million fine for breaching Europe’s strict new privacy rules, the GDPR.
- “We’re also concerned about the impact of this ruling on publishers, original content creators and tech companies in Europe and beyond,” a Google spokesperson said.
- Google also said it “worked hard to create a GDPR consent process for personalised ads that is as transparent and straightforward as possible.”
- The fine by the French watchdog is a major test for the privacy rules which came into effect across Europe last May.
