Google has lost an appeal to overturn a €100 million penalty fine from the French data protection authority in December 2020, the CNIL, over how it manages its cookies.

Earlier this month, the CNIL fined Google €150 million for cookie violations in addition to the December 2020 infringement. The IAPP published an analysis of the penalty here.
