Facebook restricts EU privacy laws

FacebookFacebook is trying to limit the number of users who will be protected by the new hardcore law data of Europe, according to the Reuters.

Except for the US and Canada, other Facebook users agree to the terms and conditions set by Facebook Ireland.

Thus, under the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is due to enter into force on May 25, even non-EU users have the right to protect their data from this law.

But now Facebook is trying to make sure that the GDPR will be implemented only to European users next month, excluding 1,5 billion users in Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Facebook is trying to limit its liability to GDPR, which is subject to huge fines for non-compliance. For more serious infringements, such as the use of data without proper consent, fines can reach up to 4% of the annual turnover of a business or 20 million.

New Private Checks confidentiality of Facebook are being applied for the first time to EU users before the rest of the world, enabling them to check what kind of data they share with Facebook and choose whether they want to allow for person identification.

Facebook's new privacy controls and terms screens.

As part of the process, users are also invited to sign an updated service and data policy, which is apparently different for European users, given the GDPR.

"While the essence of our data policy is the same globally, EU residents will have access to more specific information, such as how to contact our Data Protection Officer at GDPR."

So far, new privacy terms have been criticized for trying to hide major changes and using various design techniques and other techniques to ensure that users continue to give data to Facebook.

In a statement to Reuters, a FaceBook spokesperson sought to downplay the importance of changes to the terms of service by stating that "we apply the same privacy policies everywhere, whether your agreement is with FaceBook Inc. or FaceBook Ireland". .
