Judge: companies do request to keep silent no user data




A US judge has ruled that technology such as Facebook and Twitter to their users to tell if there is a request for user data come from the government. Only if there is a good reason for it, the government may impose a silence.

That statement comes from Judge James Orenstein in a case brought by the US government, as reported The Wall Street Journal. The authorities would require technology companies in fifteen different cases to keep quiet about requests for user data. In two of those cases concerned Facebook users, but what other companies are involved in the case, has not been made public. Also has not been made public where the data requests for exactly went.

According to Orenstein, the government must have compelling reasons for businesses to impose a duty of confidentiality. In this case it was not an issue; the authorities could not make sufficiently clear why the technology nothing would be allowed to tell their users, and they must explain precisely why an investigation might walk by revealing the data request.

The case is also important for Microsoft, which last month a case filed against the US government because of the duty of confidentiality in data requests. According to the Redmond company, the constitutional rights of citizens and businesses are being violated by the imposition of such duties remain silent when requesting personal data.
