The Italian regulator fined Google and Apple for user data

The Italian market protection regulator fined Google and Apple 10 million euros for “aggressive practices” related to the commercial use of user data.

The two technology companies do not provide “clear and direct information” on how they collect and use data from those who choose to use their services, the regulator said in a statement. Google’s system is designed so that users automatically accept the terms of use of data when creating an account. Apple does not offer users a choice in this matter, the antitrust regulator added.[tenjuregulatoraGoogleovsistemjetakoosmišljendakorisniciprikreiranjunalogaautomatskiprihvatajuiusloveoupotrebipodatakaApplekorisnicimanenudimogućnostizborautompitanjudodaojeantimonopolskiregulator

Both Google and Apple have said they disagree with the decision and will appeal it. “We offer the highest degree of transparency in the sector and control to all users who can choose which information to share and which not, and how it will be used,” Apple said in a statement, calling the regulator’s position “wrong.”

Google said in a statement that it follows “fair and transparent practices to provide users with useful services and provide clear information about their use.” The regulator pointed out that it imposed the highest amount of fines on companies that it can determine in such cases.[tenjutvrdiodasledi“pošteneitransparentnepraksekakobikorisnicimapružiokorisneuslugeidaojasneinformacijeonjihovojupotreni”Regulatorjeistakaodajekompanijamaizrekaonajvišiiznoskaznekojiutakvimslučajevimamožeodrediti
