Personal authority revokes penalty decision against Facebook




The Authority Personal revoked the cease and desist on Facebook. This was imposed last year, because Facebook refused to provide certain information. The company has submitted this information and therefore the regulator draws in the penalty.

The regulator says that the charge was withdrawn subject to penalty, because Facebook eventually previously requested information provided to the Authority for Personal Data. The penalty amount should therefore not be paid by Facebook. The Authority, then the CBP launched in 2014 a study of the then new privacy practices of Facebook.

The company refused, however, to provide certain information by which the regulator would include determining the applicability of the PDPA. CBP then explained a penalty to move Facebook yet to cooperate. After the company had, however, objected to this penalty, the decision was postponed.

The regulator also announced that the investigation into the privacy policy, which came into force on January 15th, 2015, Facebook is still ongoing.
