Russia Fines Google 3 Million Rbls for Violating Personal Data Law | Technology News

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia on Thursday fined Google 3 million roubles ($41,017) for violating personal data legislation, Google’s first fine for that offence, Moscow’s Tagansky District Court said.

Google confirmed the fine and offered no further comment.

State communications regulator Roskomnadzor said last month that Google, a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc., could be fined up to 6 million roubles for not storing the personal data of Russian users in databases on Russian territory.
