Le Data Protection Commissioner d'Irlande vient de rendre public son rapport d'enquête sur les pratiques de Facebook en matière de protection des renseignements personnels au regard de la loi irlandaise et, par le fait même de la Directive 95/46/CE.
On peut alors lire dans le communiqué de presse que:
À suivre donc."this Report is not the conclusion of our engagement with Facebook Ireland. It is rather the first significant step on a road that can place it at the forefront of the technology sector in meeting users’ legitimate privacy expectations as to how their personal data is handled and empowering them to make informed choices when sharing that information on the site. It is the role of our Office to ensure that Facebook Ireland complies with data protection law and this report assesses that compliance. Taking a leadership position that moves from compliance with the law to the achievement of best practice is for Facebook Ireland to decide but if it continues to display the commitment I witnessed throughout the Audit process it is certainly achievable.
Facebook Ireland’s delivery on its commitments will be evaluated throughout the first six months of 2012 and as part of an agreed formal review in July of next year that will take the form of a follow-up Audit."
