“Our concerns were exacerbated by the fact that we were not provided with information / documentation on February 3 regarding the Data Protection Impact Assessment or the decision-making processes carried out by Facebook Ireland. To expedite the acquisition of relevant documentation, authorized CPD officials conducted an inspection at the offices of Facebook Ireland Limited in Dublin on Monday, February 10, and gathered the documentation, ”the statement said.
The head of communications of the DPC, Graham Doyle, confirmed the compliance action and said:
We are currently reviewing all the documentation we gathered as part of the inspection on Monday (February 10) and we have asked more questions to Facebook and we are waiting for the answer. ”
Facebook Dating was born as a social network concern to compete against Tinder and start earning a portion of land in countries where dating applications are very popular.
Thus began his white march in Colombia, and then reach some countries in Latin America, Asia and the United States.
Facebook replied to the Techcrunch site about this action taken by the European Union.
“It is really important that we have the correct launch of Facebook Dating, so we take a little more time to make sure the product is ready for the European market. We work carefully to create strong privacy safeguards and complete the impact evaluation of data processing before the proposed launch in Europe, which we share with the IDPC when requested, ”said the social network.
