    Facebook scores badly on GDPR principles

    Published on 29 Mar 2018 by Lynne Callister

    gdpr principles

    As the fallout continues following the data scandal embracing Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, after facing heavy criticism for his long silence, its CEO Mark Zuckerberg has finally emerged with a six-step plan to improve privacy across its platform.

    But, just how far did the tech giant stray from the fundamental data protection principles?

    So which GDPR principles did Facebook breach?

    • Principle 1 - Personal data must be processed fairly, lawfully and in a transparent way gdpr principles
    • Principle 2 - Personal data should be collected only for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes, and not processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes gdpr principles
    • Principle 3 - The personal data collected should be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for our purpose gdpr principles
    • Principle 4 - Personal data should be accurate and kept up-to-date. Reasonable steps must be taken to ensure that inaccurate personal data is erased or rectified immediately gdpr principles
    • Principle 5 - Personal data must not be kept (in a form that permits identification of data subjects) longer than is necessary for the purpose gdpr principles
    • Principle 6 - Personal data must be protected against unauthorised access, unlawful processing, and accidental loss, destruction or damage gdpr principles
