European officials have criticised Google for not responding to their privacy-related inquiries in a timely fashion.
As a result, France's CNIL (Commission nationale de l'informatique et des libertés) - which is representing the European Commission's Article 29 Working Party - said that it would set up a working group that would examine the search giant's policies.
That group should be in place by summer. The CNIL said it will submit its proposal at the next Article 29 Working Party plenary session on 26 February.
The CNIL responded by asking Google for more details about its plan, and Google submitted its answers in April of last year. The CNIL said that response was incomplete and issued several recommendations in October 2012 that covered how Google might improve its privacy policies. Google has not yet responded to those recommendations, prompting today's statement.
