According to the document, the messenger will not delete or suspend accounts because of changes to the term of service, which provides for data sharing with Facebook. The note was signed by the Federal Public Ministry (MPF), the National Data Protection Authority (ANPD), the National Consumer Secretariat (Senacom) and the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (Cade).
The platform belonging to Facebook also made a commitment to adopt, in the national market, the same practices of transparency that it already performs in the European Union. The updating of the terms referring to WhatsApp Business and the disclosure of reports and other documents requested by ANPD are other points highlighted in the agreement.
The messenger also undertook to prepare educational materials explaining the safe use of its services and to safeguard the rights guaranteed to users by the General Data Protection Law (LGPD). The company has until August 31 to present the bodies with proof of implementation of all the agreed measures.
