Belgian groups deem Facebook's updated terms of service agreement unlawful in Europe

Two groups, one a team of lawyers, the other made up of media consultants have together concluded that the new terms of service and data policies instituted by Facebook are illegal in the European Union. The analysis by the combined team came at the request of the Belgian government's Data Protection Authority, which the investigators note, builds on work done previously on behalf of the Flemish Agency for Innovation through Science and Technology. The team has publicly published their findings in a report titled: From social media service to advertising network—a critical analysis of Facebook's Revised Policies and Terms.

The story is too old to be commented.
