France orders Microsoft to stop collecting 'excessive' data from Windows 10 users without their consent


The French data protection authority on Wednesday ordered Microsoft Corp to stop collecting excessive data on users of its Windows 10 operating system and serving them personalised ads without their consent.


The privacy watchdog CNIL said the U.S. company had three months to stop tracking browsing by users so that Windows apps and third-party apps can offer them targeted advertising without their consent, failing which it could initiate a sanctions procedure.

France warns Microsoft to Stop Collecting Windows 10 Users' Personal Data

What's more interesting is that Microsoft does not deny the allegations set against it and does nothing to defend Windows 10 excessive data collection, as well as fails to address the privacy concerns the CNIL raises.

Greets!  :wink:
