Facebook, Uber may face contempt — NPC

Uber and Facebook may be cited for contempt and face a cease-and-desist order on certain data processes once found accountable for the breach reported earlier.

The National Privacy Commission is set to issue a decision before the end of the third quarter of 2018 amid growing concerns on data privacy breach.

“There should be a clear proof of threat, of risk and harm. We might be asking Facebook for another set of data,” NPC Commissioner Raymund Liboro said in a briefing Tuesday on data privacy hosted by the Contact Center Association of the Philippines.

The Facebook case is currently facing adjudication with the NPC. The case of Uber Philippines, meanwhile, is on the NPC level after undergoing the adjudication procedure.

The PCC said it would still proceed with the Uber case despite the consummation of the acquisition deal by Grab.

Uber faced the ire of the NPC for non-disclosure of a data breach incident involving registered name, e-mail address and phone number of about 171,000 Filipinos.
