Facebook is subject to consumer concerns in the dispute over privacy | News

Monday, February 12th, 2018 | bitcoin updates

Berlin (Reuters) – According to consumer advocates Facebook has suffered a defeat in court because of insufficient information on the use of personal data. The consent of the users of the social network for the processing of personal information was partially ineffective, said the Federal Association of Consumer Advocates (vzbv) on Monday in Berlin. The vzbv had sued against the US company. A spokeswoman for the Berlin district court confirmed that in the proceedings there had been a verdict, without first being able to provide information on content. (Az 16 O 341/15) There was also no opinion from the world's largest Internet network: "Facebook hides data protection-unfriendly presets in its privacy center without sufficiently informing them when registering," said vzbv lawyer Heiko Dünkel. This violates the Federal Data Protection Act, according to which personal data may only be collected and used with the express consent of the data subject. According to vzbv information, the district court of Berlin declared some clauses in the terms of use ineffective. These included pre-formulated consent statements stating that Facebook's name and profile image may be used "for commercial, sponsored or related content" and that their data may be forwarded to the US. Accordingly, a clause is also inadmissible, with which users commit to using only their real names and data on Facebook. The vzbv was subject to its own claims with the attempt to prohibit the advertising, Facebook is free. "Consumers pay the Facebook use, although not in euros, but with their data," said Dünkel. The district court had considered the advertising but admissible. The vzbv appealed against this part of the verdict, he said. According to him, Facebook has appealed against the success of the vzbv in the proceedings. The next instance is the Kammergericht Berlin, which corresponds to the higher regional courts in other federal states.
