Facebook told to stop tracking users that aren’t logged in
« on: February 21, 2018, 06:49:42 PM »

In late 2015, a Belgian court ordered Facebook to stop tracking internet users in the country, even when they were not logged into – or even members – of its site.
Failure to comply within 48 hours would result in a €250,000 a day ($267,000) fine by the Belgian Privacy Commission (BPC), which brought the case.
Last week, in an eerie case of déjà vu all over again, a Belgian court ordered Facebook to stop tracking users not logged into its site or face a fine of €250,000 (now $315,000) per day up to a maximum of €100m. It must also delete data it had gathered from Belgians in this way.
Same issue, same result against Facebook more than two years on – what gives?
