The top six privacy organisations in the US – the Electronic Privacy Information Center, Center for Digital Democracy, Consumer Watchdog, Patient Privacy Rights, U.S. PIRG, and the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse – sent a joint letter to politicians and regulators on Wednesday asking for some of Facebook’s proposed changes to its policies to be blocked.
The letter claims that Facebook’s proposed changes violate a 2011 privacy settlement with the FTC.
Last week Facebook issued proposed changes to its Data Use Policy and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities as part of an agreement that was made in settlement of a class-action lawsuit.
