Google wins 'right-to-be'forgotten' fight with France

LUXEMBOURG, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Google does not have to remove links to sensitive personal data globally, the European Union's top court said on Tuesday as it ruled on the fight between the U.S. tech giant and French privacy regulators.

France's privacy watchdog CNIL in 2016 fined Google 100,000 euros for refusing to to delist sensitive information from internet search results globally upon request in what is called the "right to be forgotten".

The cases are C-507/17 Google and C-136/17 G.C. e.a. (Reporting by Foo Yun Chee, Editing by Gabriela Baczynska)
