Apple & Google Fined By Italy’s Antitrust Regulator For “Aggressive Practices”

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Italy’s antitrust regulator has fined Apple (AAPL) and Alphabet’s Google (GOOG) 10 million euros ($11.23 million), each for “aggressive practices” linked to the commercial use of user data.  The authority informed that the two tech groups do not provide clear and immediate information as to how data is collected and used.

The authorities further added that when users set up their accounts on Google, the process is built in such a way that the terms on data usage are set up to be accepted. However, in the case of Apple, users do not have a choice on the issue.
