EU lawmaker says Tinder breaches data protection rules

An EU lawmaker says dating app Tinder breaches the bloc's data protection rules because it uses personal data without explicit consent and should be investigated by the European Commission. The dating app, owned by website operator Match Group Inc, imposes unlawful conditions on users, pushing them to consent to unclear clauses that allow the company to use their data even after they close their accounts, socialist lawmaker Marc Tarabella said in a statement. The Belgian politician , who in 2014 was among the leading European parliament members calling for a break-up of Google's search engine from its commercial services, also accused dating app Happn and jogging app Runkeeper of violating EU data protection rules.
