A four-month deadline given the company by a European Commission privacy working group expired at the end of March, the BBC reported.
Data privacy watchdogs in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom are weighing action against Google, the BBC said.
The news came a day after Alma Whitten, Google's director of privacy, announced she would step down later this year, but a person who has discussed the issue with Google executives told The Times the news from Europe was not related to Ms. Whitten's departure.
"It doesn't really tie together ... it's not directly correlated," this person said on condition of anonymity.
In a statement the company said Ms. Whitten was retiring after 10 years, during which she had "done so much to improve our products and protect our users."
"No change" was seen following this meeting, said the CNIL statement, according to the BBC.
