Default Facebook Ordered To Stop Tracking In France

Facebook Ordered To Stop Tracking Non-Users In France

Quote:
Yet more privacy problems for Facebook in Europe. Now the French data protection authority,
the CNIL, has issued the company with a formal notice to get its house in order and comply with European data protection law
or face possible referral to the CNIL’s select committee which could then choose to pursue a sanction against the company.

Facebook has been given three months to make the changes deemed necessary by the CNIL.
If it does so to the DPA’s satisfaction it will not face any sanctions, the DPA said yesterday.

TechCrunch understands Facebook is in the process of reviewing the order from the CNIL.
A spokesperson provided the following statement regarding the action: “We are confident that we comply with European Data Protection law
and look forward to engaging with the CNIL to respond to their concerns.”

Those concerns are multiple, and were unearthed by an investigation triggered after Facebook amended its privacy policy in fall 2014.
Specifically, the CNIL is unhappy that Facebook collects the browsing activity of Internet users who do not have a Facebook account.(more at headline link)

A while back someone in the French government had the good idea to start up a "national register" along the lines of the Belgian register. Its fun, there's a chip on your identity card and when a civil servant puts it into a machine your life history rolls out depending on the authority you're dealing with.

Needless to say, the French were up in arms about the idea and it was scrapped. A bit later I was chatting with a commissaire de police in Paris and I casually asked him if he was disaoppointed with the decision to scrap the register.

He replied, "We don't need it, we've got Facebook."

I think that just about sums it all up.
