Moscow Court Fines Google $41,010 for Violation of Data Localisation Regulations

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Moscow's Tagansky district court fined Google 3 million rubles ($41,010) for violating regulations on Russians' data localisation, court spokeswoman Zulfiya Gurinchuk told Sputnik on Thursday.

"Google LLC was found guilty of committing an administrative offence under part 8 of Article 13.11 of the Russian code of administrative offences. The company was sentenced to an administrative fine of 3 million rubles", Gurinchuk said.

The protocol was issued to Google for its non-fulfilment of the obligation to ensure recording, systematisation, accumulation, storage, clarification and retrieval of personal data of Russian citizens, using databases in the country.

The maximum fine for a legal entity could reach 6 million rubles.

This is the first such fine imposed on Google.
