The National Commission on Computing and Freedom (CNIL) says Google has not satisfactorily responded to requests to be more upfront about how the search giant collects data from its users.
Regulators had also wanted Google to give users a chance to opt out of having their data centralized.
The CNIL said it will now launch formal sanction proceedings, and that the process could take a few months.
The fine itself is laughable, as Google makes $400,000 in profit roughly every 20 minutes.
