    MIAMI, FL – January 28, 2019 – Kevin M.

The commission alleges that Google wasn’t clear on how personal information is used with regard to targeted ads. Levy stated that “the problem with a company like Google is that they're collecting information and using it in so many ways that it's tough for them to make that disclosure and get that consent every time they're doing that.” Levy went on to explain "But that's what GDPR requires, and with this enforcement action, a message has been sent without breaking the bank that companies both large and small now have to go further to comply."
