Facebook last week detailed a host of updates to its business terms, all of which go into effect Aug. 31.
Facebook said in a blog post that this update will help advertisers that require data processing agreements to use Facebook’s business tools or custom audiences, in accordance with their local laws.
The company’s business tools terms are also being revised, including the incorporation of a joint controller addendum, which clarifies the responsibilities of Facebook Ireland and businesses subject to GDPR.
Facebook said it recommends that all businesses using tools such as social plugins, software-development kits or the Facebook pixel update their privacy policies where necessary in order to reflect this change.
The company’s new set of data security terms outlines its already existing practices and standards for keeping data secure and answers common questions from clients and partners.
As previously reported, the social network’s platform terms and developer policies were updated, as well.
Finally, Facebook clarified that while the changes detailed above take effect Aug. 31, its state-specific terms were enacted last week.
