(AP) France's culture minister has snubbed the launch of Google's latest project, the Paris-based Cultural Institute Lab over a row about privacy.


Aurelie Fillipetti, who was confirmed to come to the internet giant's latest cultural venture opening Tuesday, canceled at the last minute.


"I don't want to legitimize an operation that fails to address a number of outstanding questions we have with Google," Fillipetti told Le Monde newspaper, referring to a spat between Google and European governments earlier this year over transparency in collecting personal data.


France thinks Google is not doing enough stop the unauthorized collection of personal data through its online outlets.


Google Vice President Vint Cerf told the Fair Trade Commission last month that "it will be more and more difficult for us to guarantee respecting privacy."
