Google forced by court to post notice on its main page in France

Back in 2012 Google made changes to its privacy policy and these changes triggered several European privacy watchdogs to build a case against the search engine company for failing to address data protection and privacy questions.

Last month Google was sentenced to pay a €150,000 fine and ordered to post this notice of the court's decision that is now being displayed on www.google.fr. The fine which is around $204,000 is the maximum allowed by law in France. This is not the first time a company has been asked to post a notice on its main website. Apple was also required to inform its visitors when it lost a case against Samsung in UK. Apple however had problems after it excessively editorialized the notice. As a result the UK court ordered Apple to rewrite the notice.
