Belgian court orders Facebook to stop collecting data on citizens, threatens fines of up to $125mn
In its ruling, the court determined that Facebook does not adequately inform users that it is collecting information. “Facebook informs us insufficiently about gathering information about us, the kind of data it collects, what it does with that data and how long it stores it,” the court said, determining the social network had broken privacy laws. “It also does not gain our consent to collect and store all this information.”
