The Cnil, guardian of the privacy of the French, has sanctioned the American computer giant Microsoft with a fine of 60 million euros for not having allowed to simply refuse “cookies” on its search engine Bing , according to a press release published Thursday, December 22.

This is the largest fine imposed in 2022 by the authority, which announced last year a campaign of checks against sites not respecting the rules on these web cookies and had previously pinned Google, Facebook and Amazon.
