The Great Overlord of Espionage on Earth – Facebook

A little easier to understand data about what kind of information facebook collects about us: (including when you sleep, have sex or are in the toilet)

P.S. These Big-Data thieves – in which we can include Facebook, Google, Amazon, Twiter, Apple, Microsoft – have enough information about us that in the near future they are able to clone us in a virtual world, and we will have no right to forbid them from doing so!

Device Information

As described below, we collect information

  • from and about the
  • computers,
  • phones,
  • connected TVs and other
  • web-connected devices you use that integrate with our Products,
    and we combine this information across different devices you use. For example,
  • we use information collected about your use of our Products on
  • your phone to better personalize the content (including ads) or features you see when you use our Products on
  • another device, such as
  • your laptop or
  • tablet,
    or to measure whether you took an action in response to an ad we showed you on your phone on a different device.

Information we obtain from these devices includes:

Device attributes: information such as the

  • operating system,
  • hardware and
  • software versions,
  • battery level,
  • signal strength,
  • available storage space,
  • browser type,
  • app and file names and types, and
  • plugins.

Device operations:

information about

  • operations and
  • behaviors performed on the device,
    such as
  • whether a window is foregrounded or backgrounded, or
  • mouse movements
    (which can help distinguish humans from bots).

Identifiers:

  • unique identifiers,
  • device IDs, and
  • other identifiers, such as from
  • games,
  • apps or
  • accounts you use, and
  • Family Device IDs
  • (or other identifiers unique to Facebook Company Products associated with the same device or account).

Device signals:

  • Bluetooth signals, and information about nearby
  • Wi-Fi access points,
  • beacons, and
  • cell towers.

Data from device settings:

information you allow us to receive through device settings you turn on, such as access to your

  • GPS location,
  • camera or
  • photos.

Network and connections:

information such as the

  • name of your mobile operator or
  • ISP,
  • language,
  • time zone,
  • mobile phone number,
  • IP address,
  • connection speed and,
    in some cases, information about
  • other devices that are nearby or on your network,
    so we can do things like help you stream a video from your phone to your TV.

Cookie data:

data from cookies

  • stored on your device, including
  • cookie IDs and
  • settings.

Information from partners.

Advertisers, app developers, and publishers can send us information through Facebook Business Tools they use, including our social plug-ins (such as the Like button), Facebook Login, our APIs and SDKs, or the Facebook pixel. These partners provide information about your activities off Facebook – including information about your

  • device
  • websites you visit,
  • purchases you make, the
  • ads you see, and
  • how you use their services—whether or not you have a Facebook account or are logged into Facebook.
    For example, a game developer could use our API to tell us what
  • games you play, or a business could tell us about a
  • purchase you made in its store.
    We also receive information about your
  • online and
  • offline actions and
  • purchases from third-party data providers who have the rights to provide us with your information.

***  This offline information can be taken over by other applications such as: gps coordinates, speed of movement, position, etc. (including when sleeping, having sex or being in the toilet) !

I don’t know why, but I saw on https://www.security.org/ that facebook doesn’t collect certain data (Unique Identifiers), which is false, because after reading Facebook Data Policy I understood something completely different. In fact, it seems to me that other information about what data Facebook collects is omitted, which seems suspicious to me !
