Google had been fined for $57m by French regulators in January 2019 because the tech company didn't provide "sufficiently clear" information regarding the consent to use private data for targeted advertisements. The highest French court for administrative law has now denied the appeal against the fine and affirmed the jurisdiction of the regulators.

A court in the Netherlands ruled that a Grandmother must delete pictures of her three grandchildren that she posted on Facebook and Pinterest without their parents' permission.

The case that ended up in court after a falling-out between the woman and her daughter was within the scope of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
