Sandberg said that Facebook had legal assurances that the data had been deleted, but admitted that the company didn't take the additional step of auditing the company to verify the claims.

With the wounds from the Cambridge Analytica data scandal still raw, Facebook has banned another third-party company from its platform over the improper use of data - this time it's Canadian political consulting firm AggregateIQ.

"This work has not progressed past the planning phase, and we have not received, shared, or analyzed anyone's data", Facebook said in a statement, obtained by The Independent.

And now, Professor of Law, Maureen Mapp told Money Control that anyone who has been breached could be entitled to thousand of Euro in compensation. When BuzzFeed News asked Facebook when it would roll this out to users, it declined to provide a timeframe. In addition, Facebook will begin labeling political ads and providing information on them to users, including where the money for the ads came from. It's all about cash money on this week's #GirlsWithGoals Listen in on your iPhone or Android now. Many users are seeing that as a breach of trust.

Sandberg's boss, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, is expected to testify on Capitol Hill next week regarding the scandal.

The result leaves Bayern 20 points clear with five league games left and underlined their total dominance of the Bundesliga. REAL MADRID boss Zinedine Zidane would be a flawless fit for Bayern Munich, according to club legend Oliver Kahn.

"But that doesn't mean you don't tell the users, 'hey this was stolen from you, '" she said.

The measure is already in place for political ads, and comes as Facebook tries to clamp down on outside election interference ahead of this year's USA mid-terms and upcoming political contests around the world. You can delete them, sure ... but that won't delete them from the recipient's data file. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives' messages.

We now know how many of those users are South African, and it's a thankfully a relatively small number.

"But I think we got the balance wrong", she said.

Facebook has suspended Canadian company AggregateIQ from its platform, citing concerns that the firm has links to Cambridge Analytica's parent company and had unwarranted access to user data.
