Facebook Dating delayed after row with regulator

Facebook has delayed the launch of its new dating feature in Europe, after a last-minute visit by officers from the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC).

 

The DPC said it had been told about the feature just 10 days ahead of the planned launch and "no information or documentation was provided to us".

 

"We were very concerned that this was the first that we'd heard," it said.

 

Dating, couple, happy, in love

 

Officers had gathered documents during Monday's inspection of Facebook's EU headquarters, in Dublin, the DPC said.

 

The move also affects the UK market, which is bound to EU rules during the post-Brexit transition period this year.

 

Facebook, however, said it had completed the necessary paperwork and shared it when asked.

 

"It's really important that we get the launch of Facebook Dating right, so we are taking a bit more time to make sure the product is ready for the European market," a representative said.

 

"We worked carefully to create strong privacy safeguards and complete the data-processing impact assessment ahead of the proposed launch in Europe, which we shared with the [regulator] when it was requested."

 

No new date has been set for the roll-out.
