Germany is all set to take Legal Actions against Facebook

Facebook has more privacy trouble on it's hands as an official in Germany decides to take legal action against the social giant.

A German data protection official said Wednesday he launched legal proceedings against Facebook, which he accused of illegally accessing and saving personal data of people who don’t use the social networking site.

Johannes Caspar said his Hamburg data protection office had initiated legal steps that could result in Facebook being fined tens of thousands of euros for saving private information of individuals who don’t use the site and haven’t granted it access to their details.

“We consider the saving of data from third parties, in this context, to be against data privacy laws,” Caspar said in a statement.
