Given Google's non-compliance with the recommendations issued by the G29 (the Article 29 Data Protection Working Party consisting of the 27 data protection authorities of the European Union Member States) on its new privacy rules (please refer to the Legal and regulatory update - March 2012), six European data protection authorities decided, on 2 April 2013, to initiate enforcement actions to sanction Google. In France, the CNIL decided to initiate an inspection procedure, while ensuring an administrative cooperation with the other members of the G29.
