Meta to change UK terms of service, maintain data flows
Meta plans to change its terms of service and privacy notices for U.K. users, Bloomberg reports. U.K. Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp users will retain data rights under the U.K. General Data Protection Regulation while the company moves user data out of the EU General Data Protection Regulation's jurisdiction. A Meta spokesperson said the updates, which were planned following the U.K.'s 2020 Brexit agreement, "don't change the way we treat UK users’ data." The move also comes as Meta faces a potential EU service blackout pending a data transfers ruling by the European Data Protection Board. Editor's note: IAPP Research & Insights Director Joe Jones offered practical considerations for EU enforcement based on the Meta cases.
