EU warns Facebook it faces sanctions over ‘misleading’ T&Cs

European Commission has warned Facebook it will face sanctions unless it changes what it calls its “misleading” terms and conditions. Facebook has been given until the end of the year to change its terms of service.

The commission acknowledged that Facebook had made some changes but said its terms and conditions remained problematic because Facebook “tells consumers that their data and content is used only to improve their overall ‘experience’ and does not mention that the company uses these data for commercial purposes”.
