Spain’s information insurance guard dog has fined Facebook €1.2 million euros about $1.44 million after it discovered three examples that facebook gathers individual information of its Spanish clients without informing them of how it was to be utilized.

The judgment is the most recent in a progression of legitimate issues that have happened to the online networking mammoth.

As indicated by Mark Scott, Politico’s Chief Politics reporter, the French, German, and Dutch governments are also looking into how Facebook utilizes information relating to their natives.

The Spanish information assurance expert said that Facebook’s security approach contains “nonexclusive and misty terms,” and doesn’t go sufficiently far to gather the assent of its clients.

When TNW reached out to Facebook, A spokesman said “We take note of the DPA’s decision with which we respectfully disagree. Whilst we value the opportunities we’ve had to engage with the DPA to reinforce how seriously we take the privacy of people who use Facebook, we intend to appeal this decision.

As we made clear to the DPA, users choose which information they want to add to their profile and share with others, such as their religion.

However, we do not use this information to target adverts to people.”

“Facebook has long complied with EU data protection law through our establishment in Ireland.

We remain open to continuing to discuss these issues with the DPA, whilst we work with our lead regulator the Irish Data Protection Commissioner as we prepare for the EU’s new data protection regulation in 2018.”
