The European Commission has announced that Facebook has agreed to amend its terms and conditions in Europe to make them clearer for users. This is great news after all of the data scandals we have heard about recently.
Facebook has now agreed that they will reveal what information they will share with third parties and also make it clear that people have free access to their service on the basis that data is being collected on them.
Today, the European Commission and consumer protection authorities have welcomed Facebook’s updated terms and services. They now clearly explain how the company uses its users’ data to develop profiling activities and target advertising to finance their company.
The new terms detail what services, Facebook sells to third parties that are based on the use of their user’s data, how consumers can close their accounts and under what reasons accounts can be disabled. These developments come after exchanges, which aimed at obtaining full disclosure of Facebook’s business model in a comprehensive and plain language to users.
