Italy watchdog launches proceedings against Facebook
Topics: ITALY T FACEBOOK
The procedure could lead to a possible fine of up to 5 million euros ($5.6 million), it said in a statement.
In November 2018 the watchdog ruled that Facebook had not informed users properly about the collection and use, for commercial reasons, of the data they release.
It fined Facebook 5 million euros and asked it to publish an amending statement on the homepage of its website for Italy, on the Facebook app and on the personal page of each registered Italian user.
On Friday the regulator said Facebook had not done so. ■
