Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jasmeet were told by the Center in an affidavit that although laws enacted in 2011 under the Information Technology Act prohibit sharing information with third parties, WhatsApp said information and information would be freely shared and accepted by other Facebook-owned companies.
It said no information was provided about third parties to share information, and sent that since the user contract is for WhatsApp only, all other Facebook companies are "third parties" and any data allocation between them is a violation of the law.
The trial is set to begin on April 20.
“WhatsApp has reported that information and information will be freely shared and shared with other Facebook companies. Since the user contract is only on WhatsApp, all other Facebook companies are ‘third parties’ and any sharing of information obtained by them would be a violation of the disclosure of further disclosure, ”he added.
WhatsApp has been plagued by critics who say users will now have no choice but to accept the offer if they want to continue using the system. The company postponed the release of the policy on May 15 but also announced in February that it would continue with its decision. This happened despite the government having written a letter, asking the company to abandon its plans.
WhatsApp did not respond to requests for comment.
Responding to a response from the Union government, attorney Meghan said: "Three rights have been prayed for before the court to be declared an authority not mentioned in the affidavit." The three were entitled to claim confirmation, access and correction; objections, restrictions and confidentiality of information; and that you have forgotten as part of Article 21 and the inside of the right to privacy.
He further added that the government has not yet implemented a proposal to protect user privacy. "How to protect the privacy of a citizen at that time has also not been followed in this affidavit," he added.
The government has said that, in accordance with the law, WhatsApp is required to define "personal" and "sensitive personal information", but WhatsApp has used common terms to include data types, and has not distinguished between "personal" data or "sensitive" data.
According to the 2011 law, there are eight categories of information that qualify as sensitive personal data, including user passwords, financial instruments and transaction information, and biometrics information.
A WhatsApp spokesman also said the proposed update "does not extend" the company's ability to share information with Facebook. “As we said in January when this issue was first raised: we wish to emphasize that this update does not enhance our ability to share information with Facebook. Our goal is to provide transparency and new options available to engage businesses so that they can serve their customers and grow. WhatsApp will always protect personal messages with end-to-end encryption
