Facebook in breach of Korean privacy laws, says regulator [computerworld.com]

Facebook is in breach of South Korean data privacy laws and needs to do a better job of getting consent from users when getting their personal information, a South Korean regulator said Wednesday.

The Korea Communications Commission said Facebook also criticized Facebook's handling of personal information, provision of personal information to third parties and the social-networking site's privacy policy.

"Facebook violates the regulations on protection of privacy in information networks," said Choi Seong Jin, a spokesman for the KCC.

The U.S.-based company has 30 days to respond to the complaint, the KCC said.
