(AP) France says it will fine Google 300,000 euros ($402,180) for breaking rules on data privacy.


The French agency that regulates information technology says Google Inc. hadn't satisfactorily responded to its June decision giving the company three months to be more upfront about the data it collects from users.


In a statement Friday, France's National Commission on Computing and Freedom, known as CNIL, says Google hasn't made requested changes including specifying to users what it uses personal data for, and how long it's held.


CNIL says it will now launch formal sanction proceedings.


Google spokesman Al Verney said "Our privacy policy respects European law and allows us to create simpler, more effective services. We have engaged fully with CNIL throughout this process and will continue to do so going forward."
