Many of "the elements provided do not give a precise, clear and comprehensive response to our questions," said CNIL President Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin. "Many answers merely provide illustrative examples without describing the exact processings, procedures or systems Google actually operates."
On Wednesday the CNIL submitted an extensive list of rephrased questions to Google that clarify the regulatory body's expectations concerning the nature of the information that it expects to receive by no later than June 8.
"The fact that Google's position on personal data proceedings is still unclear on many points after an in-depth exchange with the CNIL raises concerns," Falque-Pierrotin wrote in a letter to Google CEO Larry Page.
Lacking Basic Information
Among other things, the CNIL wants to know how many times Internet users actually viewed Google's new privacy Web site from the last week of January through March 1st this year. And for comparison purposes, regulators also want Google to indicate the total number of Google services users.
The CNIL noted that Google has not yet delivered a complete list of its personal data processings, as defined by the European Data Protection Directive. Regulators also want to receive the complete list of the privacy policies that Google has merged into the new single policy for all of its Web properties.
