Day 2 Talk2Facebook ~ Data Protection

Responding to Walu\’s question,I  think the Kenyan government still has not put  proper legal channels when demanding  information about private Kenyan users from Facebook.According  Facebook policies , they don\’t respond to requests not channelled through formal legal process initiated.Powered by Cricket Wireless

We hope the FB Personnel on the list will respond tosome of the issues you have raised. Indeed we thought this particular topic on Data Protection will elicit more responses than we\’ve got,the floor is still open and you don\’t necessarily need to respond to the set questions, you can raise anyother issue around Data Protection of Facebook. Tomorrow we talk about \”Human Rights & Transparency\”. Thank you all!  On Thu, Sep 17, 2020 at 4:07 PM Walubengo J <> wrote:
@Tr Karis,With Kenya enacting its Data Protection Act late last year, I would have thot the Data Protection theme would have elicited more responses….but perhaps that is precisely why we need the conversation to raise awareness…Nway, my experience is that FB has come a long way to be compliant with Data Protection matters – particularly following the EU GDPR enactment in 2018…their Privacy page says more.Data Policy There seems to be still some problems however, and recently Irish Data Protection Commissioner ruled that EU Citizen would no longer be send to US servers…since the US Gov can have access to it.WSJ News Exclusive | Ireland to Order F…I just need to understand the role and extend of government surveillance on FB user data and how transparent FB is abou this.walu.

Dear Lister!

Trusting you are well, a great appreciation to all who shared their views on Day 1! We
are on Day 2 of  “Talk2Facebook”, today we focus on Data Protection Issues.

Kenya enacted its
Data Protection & Privacy Act in 2019 where the rights of individuals (data
subjects) have been enhanced. Share your comments, experiences, and challenges
with regard to Facebook Services along the following themes:

a) Have you
managed to exercise your right to access and port (move) all your data that you
ever posted on FB?

b) Have you
managed to exercise your right to be forgotten, where you demand FB deletes all
the digital footprint they have about?

c) Have you
managed to exercise your right to modify or restrict the consent you previously
granted to FB?


You can still comment on
yesterday’s topic under that thread. Otherwise, we hope to hear all your
concerns around Data Protection today on this thread so tomorrow we discuss “Human Rights & Transparency” matters.


Wonderful Thursday!


Rest of the Program:

Day 3: Human Rights &

Day 4: Connectivity &
Wrap Up


Warm Regards,

Tr. Karis
