New Delhi: WhatsApp told the Delhi High Court on Friday that it has put a voluntary stop on the new privacy policy for the time being. WhatsApp told the Delhi High Court that it will not limit its capabilities until the Data Protection Bill is implemented.

Whatsapp Privacy Policy:

The company said that there is no regulatory body in our case, so the government will decide, so we have said that we will not implement it for some time. This means that the facilities that the users are taking advantage of will continue to run.

Let us tell you that the Competition Commission had ordered an inquiry regarding the new privacy policy of WhatsApp. The next hearing is to be held on July 30.

The High Court asked WhatsApp that an allegation has been made against you that you want to collect data and give it to others. Which you cannot do without the consent of the other party.

Court on Whatsapp privacy:

The allegation is also that you have a different scale for India. Is there a different policy for India and Europe? The company said that I have made a commitment that I will not do anything till the law comes from Parliament. If Parliament allows me to make a separate policy for India, we will make that one too. If it doesn't, then I'll consider it too. CCI is examining that policy If Parliament allows me to share the data, CCI can't say anything.

Let us tell you that the Delhi High Court was hearing a petition by WhatsApp and its parent company Facebook, in which it refused to interfere in the CCI's investigation against WhatsApp's new privacy policy.

In fact, on June 23, the Delhi High Court had refused to stay the CCI's notice seeking certain information from Facebook and the messaging app in connection with the investigation of WhatsApp's new privacy policy.
