Khushboo Jain of Cyber Law Advocate says on the new policy of WhatsApp that in India, it was considered a safe medium when it comes to its contract act and no customer chat will be shared with anyone. But it is a one-sided policy against the present act. Now people are being forced in a way that if no one does not accept the new conditions, then whatsapp can not be used. The other important thing is that due to the sharing of data, since 2016, it was being shared internally with Facebook. But now it is a matter of business, now data will be shared with third party. That is, the company is running its own business by taking user data.
What kind of danger will come.
Credit card, debit card, all other information, IP location, Internet will share in the kind of data you are talking about. But the way cybercrime is increasing today. At such times it can be very harmful. Therefore, it is important to bring a law that organizations like WhatsApp should not say that we do not believe in this law. Also, its category has to be done separately so that privacy is not violated. If someone is running WhatsApp on the system then there is a cookie in it, then it keeps track very fast and when running WhatsApp, if you go to a site and order something, then WhatsApp will get its money and all these cookies through the system Keeps watch and tells what you are doing.
Policy is different in Europe and UK.
Need to tighten the law.
Brijesh Singh says that they are not doing this in other countries because we have the same cyber law here, while looking at the US, there is a Hippa for health, separate laws for children’s information protection. If we look at the whole of Europe, there is a very strong law. Even when China brought the law and these companies refused to obey, they stopped Google, Facebook and Twitter. Now if someone has to take an entry inside China, they will have to give details, what data will be taken, where will they be kept, whom will they give, etc.
The situation will change after the arrival of PDPR.
As far as data share is concerned, our data is not being shared from today, but it is happening since 2016, now its different categories have been made. Such as transactional data, other information of the device etc. But now its monetization will be done. But now many things will be taken without our permission. In a Supreme Court Supreme Court case, these people said that the laws and regulations of your country do not apply to us. In our country too, the law related to this is being worked out. After PDPR (Personal Data Protection Regulation), it will make a difference. Then the company cannot say that the laws here do not apply.
Startup came forward.
