Social media giant Facebook once again fined by Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD). AEPD has issued a €1.2 Million (nearly $1.4 Million) fine against Facebook for breaching laws designed to protect its people's information and confidentiality.

Recently, Tech giant Google was also fine of $2.7 billion (€2.42 billion) by the European antitrust officials on manipulating search results since at least 2008.

The AEPD found Facebook collecting sensitive data on user's ideology, sex, personal tastes, religious beliefs and navigation, either directly from its own services or through third parties without clearly informing it's users how this information would be used.



The AEPD also identified two serious violation of privacy laws, following are:
  1. Tracking people through the use of "Like" button social plug-ins embedded in other non-Facebook web pages—for which it is fined €300,000 ($359,049).
  2. Failing to delete data collected from users once it has finished using it, in fact, the company "retains and reuses it later associated with the same user"—which resulted in another €300,000 ($359,049) fines. 


However, Tech giant Facebook denied any wrong doing and intended to appeal the decision of the AEPD providing the following statement. 

"We take note of the DPA's decision with which we respectfully disagree. Whilst we value the opportunities we've had to engage with the DPA to reinforce how seriously we take the privacy of people who use Facebook, we intend to appeal this decision." 
"As we made clear to the DPA, users choose which information they want to add to their profile and share with others, such as their religion. However, we do not use this information to target adverts to people."
In May, the social media giant was fined €150,000 ($179,532) by for the way Facebook targeted advertising and tracked users.
