WhatsApp 2021 privacy policy leaves users in ‘take it or leave it’ situation: Delhi High Court

Tata Group in talks with Wistron to manufacture iPhone in India: Report

The Delhi High Court has said that WhatsApp’s 2021 privacy policy leaves users in a “take it or leave it” situation. The privacy policy forces users to sign an agreement and then share data with Facebook. The court’s verdict came while dismissing an appeal by WhatsApp and Facebook against an order. The order rejected the social media platform’s challenge to the inquiry by the Competition Commission of India (CCI).

The 2021 WhatsApp privacy policy leaves users in a “take it or leave it” situation, the Delhi High Court ruled. A bench comprising Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad said the judge’s April 22, 2021 order was deliberate.

The appeal filed by the tech giant was said to be without merit and without substance warranting the court’s intervention.

A day ago, the division bench delivered the judgment and uploaded it on the Delhi High Court website today.

The division bench also added that the 2016 privacy policy by the social messaging platform had given users an option to opt out of sharing account information with Facebook within the first 30 days after agreeing to the updated terms of service and privacy policy.
