The changes that are up for a vote include:
—- Updated language clarifying that Facebook can use users’ data to serve advertisements outside of Facebook’s Website.
—- Updated language for better explanation of why Facebook retains user data.
In order to get these changes applied 30 percent of all active Facebook users must approve them which make about 230 million votes. In case if these numbers of users do not happen to vote changes will be considered as “under advisory.”
Facebook tried to handle the situation with “Download Your Information” feature, which allowed users to download a greater chunk of personal data, including their friend request history, IP addresses from where they accessed Facebook, changes to account status, and variety of other information. But Schrem kept on doing his efforts, he told The New York Times that he’s still not satisfied with the privacy policies and the update is still not meeting the European data protection law.
