Rule of thumb: EVERYTHING violates German privacy laws.
The court in Dusseldorf ruled that the companies will have to inform consumers on their website in future that clicking the "Like" button may cause their IP addresses to be transferred to Facebook."The watchdog says the button is used by Facebook to install small bits of software[sic] on people's computers that can be used to compile a profile of their interests - irrespective of whether they have a Facebook account or not."
Facebook was created by the NSA and is run by them.
My Facebook accounts are controlled by an agglomeration of fanatics, thieves, and ne'er-do-wells. That way even if they track me down, I can point to someone worse.
You have to choose to click "like"...how can that invade your privacy?
What the fucking Hell?And since Zuckerburg is in LOVE with German laws, prepare to see that end here.
"What do you mean this Facebook like button tells Facebook I liked this?!!?!"
German Court finds that Germans are morons when it comes to technology.Alternatively, the German Courts are full of Judges trapped in 1995.
Gahrie said... You have to choose to click "like"...how can that invade your privacy? In the article it said the website was sending user info to Facebook even without the "like" button being used. That is against that site, not Facebook or its buttons.
