Privacy Wars: Belgian Court Orders Facebook To Stop Collecting User Data

• technocracy.news By Samual Gibbs

Facebook has been ordered by a Belgian court to stop collecting data on users or face daily fines of €250,000 a day, or up to €100m.

The court ruled on Friday that Facebook had broken privacy laws by tracking people on third-party sites in the latest salvo in a long-running battle between the Belgian commission for the protection of privacy (CPP) and the social network.

"Facebook informs us insufficiently about gathering information about us, the kind of data it collects, what it does with that data and how long it stores it," the court said. "It also does not gain our consent to collect and store all this information."

Facebook has also been ordered to delete all data it had gathered illegally on Belgian citizens, including people who were not users of the social network.
