Privacy policies of Google, Amazon and Facebook violate the GDPR Directive

Privacy policies of some of the largest technology companies may not comply with the standard of the GDPR Directive, this conclusion is contained in the results of a study by the European Union Institute (Italy, Florence).

Besides, in the description of 11% of privacy policies, vague wording was used and there was no clarity in the description. A program with artificial intelligence technology (AI) "Claudette" was used in the analysis.

Monique Goyens, CEO of BEUC, the European consumer organization in Brussels, called on EU regulators to consider potential violations discovered by researchers. "Many privacy policies may not comply with the standard of law," she said in her statement.

Google's representative from Google Alphabet, commenting on the results of the study, said that the company updated its privacy policy and used a clear and simple language. The Amazon representative also stated that the confidentiality policy complied with the requirements of the GDPR. Representatives of Facebook have not yet commented on this information.
