Facebook Updated Two Legal Privacy Documents


On Thursday Facebook Updated Two Legal Privacy Documents. Facebook also cleared about their services for free of charge and users are responsible for any access fees, like data charges and text messages.
Facebook said, "We are proposing updates to two important legal documents – our Data Use Policy and our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. These two documents tell you about how we collect and use data, and the rules that apply when you choose to use Facebook. From time to time we update these documents to make sure we keep you posted about the latest things you can do with Facebook."

Data Use Policy key updates are:

1. Your information. We clarified that you share information with Facebook when you communicate with us, like when you send us an email.
2. Other information we receive about you.  We simplified the explanation for how we receive information and clarified the types of information we receive when you use or run Facebook, including from your devices, such as your IP address or mobile phone number.
3. Personalized ads. We rewrote the entire advertising section to better explain what we thought was important for people to know about how we use the information we receive to provide relevant ads to people on and off Facebook.

Facebook, Google Inc and other companies have insisted that they have never participated in any program giving the government direct access to their computer servers and that they only provide information in response to specific requests, after careful review and as required by law.

Facebook Chief Privacy Officer Erin Egan said that adding members' public profile photos would give users better control over their personal information, by making it easier to identify posted photos in which they appear.

"Our goal is to facilitate tagging so that people know when there are photos of them on our service," Egan said.
