European Privacy Watchdog Told Facebook to Stop User Tracking

European Privacy Watchdog Told Facebook to Stop User Tracking

The Belgian privacy commission has warned the popular social network over tracking the online activities of Internet users who have not registered with Facebook or have logged out. This notification was issued following a “staggering” report that showed alleged breaches of European privacy law.

The Belgian privacy commission claimed that Facebook has no respect for its users’ private lives. It turned out that Facebook on a long-term basis has been tracking people who visit any page on Facebook.com domain, even if they were not registered with the service. This is why the Belgian privacy commission accused the social network of being in a unique position compared to other cases of “third-party tracking”, because it is able to link people’s browsing habits to their real identity, social network interactions and sensitive information.

Therefore, Facebook is accused of failure to seek explicit consent from Internet users for any tracking related to serving ads. Besides, the privacy commission claims that the company’s current measures are insufficient to obtain that explicit consent. In the meantime, the European privacy law implies that the user must give prior consent to the service to issue a cookie or track their online activities. Websites are also obliged to notify Internet users that they use cookies and request consent to do so.

The Belgian privacy commission believes that Facebook can only track Internet users if they are logged into the social network, but not when logged out. In the latter case, the company has to use session cookies, which expire after a certain time period or when no longer needed. This opinion was issued by the privacy watchdog after the report found that Facebook’s social plugins like the “Like” button read tracking cookies and send that data back to Facebook.

Imutus avatarMore and more people will hate the whole Facebook. It`s sad that company is digging it`s own grave. I have used for years Firefox browser with Adblock plus and element hiding helper. It`s simple, just make a rule that all social media buttons, Twitter, Facebook and other bullshit "Like" buttons are removed from every webpage that exist on planet earth. Plus, I use free Avast Antivirus which has one very useful option, "Do not track". Nearly every webpage you open, Twitter, Google+ and Facebook are trying to track you. Avast will block all those assholes lurking you. I guess everybody knows this already, but still there are people that doesn`t.

No avatarThe European Privacy Watchdog has not told facebook to stop using illegal tracker. The have merely issued a warning notice. That's news, but is nothing.

As for facebook tracking and various other spyware activities, it's been widely known for years. Only the most ignorant of the ignorant don't already know.

But still, if you use Google Chrome or Google, you surely do not care who tracks/spies on you anyway.

MECH8204 avatarno. 1 imutus as for do not track "websites and advertisers may either honour the request, or completely ignore it"so that options probly not as usefull as you think might even say its worthless since avast cant make them comply.

Crash1 avatarThat's why all my cookies for online services (google, Yahoo, Facebook, etc) are set to 'Current Session Only' ... they're automatically deleted when I close the browser. If you fail to set that up you deserve what you get!
