The data protection authorities of the 27 EU countries have announced on Monday that they will impose sanctions on U.S. technology, Google, before summer for refusing to adjust their privacy policy to EU legislation.

In October 2012, the European union concluded that Google’s privacy policy in breach of EU rules on data protection and given a period of four months to make necessary alteration to avoid a penalty.

In particular, the European agencies requested Google to data protection that and give complete information on the data collected, the period of storage, use, and the combination of data collected by different services, such as YouTube, Gmail or Google+.

"At the expiration of four months since Google to meet and commit to implement these recommendations, the company has not provided any response," said the French authority on data protection, CNIL, which coordinates research.

Therefore, the data protection agencies propose the implementation of a working group, controlled by the CNIL, to coordinate their repressive actions that must occur before the summer", the statement said.

This announcement penalty has nothing to do with the file of the European Commission against the same company for alleged anti-competitive practices.
