Companies like Apple, Google, Nike, Universal Studios , have had billions of dollars in fines for the same problem, obtaining personal data for the development of commercial products, or in the worst case, designing metrics for brands, but with consumption data or very personal habits of the users of its platforms.
Who is enlisting a new fine of this type is Facebook, since Spain imposed a fine of 1.2 million euros, or 1.4 million dollars, since authorities proved that the social network collected details of gender, religious beliefs, personal tastes and browsing histories, without informing Spanish users of the advertising purposes of their personal information.
Apparently, the investigation came from an investigation in Spain, along with Belgium, France, Germany, and even the Netherlands . However, it should be noted that $ 1.4 million is only a tiny fraction of Facebook’s 8 billion earnings per quarter.
Through cookies, Facebook also collected data from people who do not have an account on the social network, but browse other pages that have a banner with an invitation to connect with Facebook, so by not obtaining consents, it would be violating protection laws data, which is a “serious infringement” for the European Union.
