PARIS (AP) - France’s privacy watchdog has handed down its largest fine ever against Google for improperly gathering and storing potentially sensitive data from Wi-Fi networks for its Street View application.

Monday’s euro100,000 ($141,300) fine sanctions Google for collecting personal data _ including e-mails, web browsing histories and online banking details _ from 2007 to 2010 through its roaming camera-mounted cars and bicycles.
