Google was fined $112,000 on Thursday by France’s data protection watchdog for failing to comply with demands to extend a European privacy ruling across its global domains, including making changes to Google.com in the United States.
The financial penalty is for violation of the “right to be forgotten” ruling issued in 2014 by Europe’s top court. The ruling allows anyone with connections to Europe to ask search engines like Google to remove links about themselves from online results. The company said it would appeal the fine.
