South Korea's regulator fined Google 69.2 billion won ($50 million) and Meta 30.8 billion won ($22 million). It is noted that the companies did not warn users about the collection of personal data and did not obtain their prior consent. However, the data was collected and used for personalised advertising.

The companies responded to the South Korean Personal Data Protection Commission. Google says that it has always provided all the legal information in the user agreement and that it is not allowed to use Google's services without having read the document. Google also says it adheres to all South Korean legal requirements. That's why they are now waiting for the court's decision.

Meta also noted that it adheres to the rules of work in the country and familiarizes users with all legal information. The company does not agree with the commission's decision and will wait for the court's decision.
