French data protection authority orders Facebook to comply with formal notice

The Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) has given Facebook three months to comply with a formal notice. The notice requests Facebook to stop tracking the browsing activity of Internet users who do not have a Facebook account, and to provide account holders with the means to object to the compiling of their data for advertising purposes, among other measures. The French data protection authority may fine the company if it fails to comply.
