Google: GDPR Vulnerability?

February 6, 2019

If you are curious about the impact of the GDPR on Google, you may want to take a look at “What to Know about Google’s GDPR Troubles.” I don’t have a good sense of what constitutes an objective review of Google and GDPR. Also, I don’t know if the information in the write up from Digiday is 100 percent accurate. Footnotes can be helpful when they are included.

Nevertheless, the article suggests that Google may be a target for individual EU member actions related to GDPR. At this point, it is not clear how many legal entities can go after the company generating more than $80 million a day in profit.

The write up states:

While the majority of GDPR warnings and fines have come from the French regulator, it won’t likely remain that way.

The cost of litigating in separate companies and any fines levied could become onerous even to an outfit like Alphabet Google.
