The Delhi High Court has demanded Centre’s response on Whatsapp Facebook Data Sharing policy. An instant messaging app Whatsapp has planned to share user data with Facebook.
Whatsapp will share Personal information with Facebook. For this, the user will get 30 days to share the details.
Looking into the privacy policies, Whatsapp has taken decision to take care of around 1 billion users.
The notice has been issued to the centre by High Court following a petition by two users. They have told the concerned authorities to give answer of the petition by September 14.
“The new private policy of WhatsApp, Facebook Inc and Facebook India Online Private Limited's new private policy must compromise with the rights of its users. " Petition quoted.
The plea was filed on August 25, 2016 which stated that"severely compromises the rights of its users and makes the privacy rights of users completely vulnerable."
On September 25, the new policy will be included that will change the most valuable, basic and essential feature of WhatsApp, the petition read.
Senior advocates Sandeep Sethi and Pratibha M Singh said, “ it is a very serious breach of policy".
“The manner of taking consent was highly deceptive in as much as almost the entire community of users of WhatsApp in India are not equipped to even read, much less comprehend" the terms and conditions, they added.
