MOSCOW, June 16 (RAPSI) — Google LLC was fined 15 million rubles (about $264,000) on Thursday for repeated refusal to locate personal data of Russian users in the Russian Federation, the Moscow Tagansky District Court’s press service told RAPSI.
The company was found guilty of repeated violation of Russian personal data legislation, the court held.
In July 2021, a magistrate judge Google 3 million rubles for refusal to locate personal data of Russian users in the Russian Federation.
Earlier, Russia’s communications watchdog Roskomnadzor reminded of the fact that the operator must ensure recording, systematization, keeping, updating, changing and recovery of data of Russian users with the use of databases locating within the country. These rules provide the sufficient level of data security, the watchdog states.
