WhatsApp claims in Delhi High Court : Not sharing user data with Facebook
We only have access to the person’s name and number which is also obtained by online consent. We are abiding by the central government’s regulations for messenger apps. We are not dealing with sensitive information at all. If any of the user wants to opt out of the new policy, he/she cannot be forced to not choose that option.
–Senior advocate Siddharth Luthra, appearing for WhatsApp
