The Dutch Data Protection Authority, or DPA, asked Google to attend a meeting to discuss its concerns, after which it would decide whether to take any action against the cloud services, Internet search and advertising giant, which could include fines. Google, responding to the Dutch authority's findings, said it provided users of its services with sufficiently specific information about the way it processed their personal data. We have engaged fully with the Dutch DPA throughout this process and will continue to do so going forward,” Google said in a statement.
