- Summary of Request
- Dear Facebook,
I wish to get access, on a daily basis, to the "Advertisers with your contact information" data from my Facebook account.
From my understanding, the same section in the "Ad Preferences" section of your site gives a very limited list of advertisers (2, in my case). The self-download tool, on the other hand, gives a much longer list, of a few dozens, if not a hundred. Note that a consequence is that the "Ad Preferences" tool is misleading.
Presumably frequent downloads through the self-download tool would satisfy my request, except that at the moment I cannot generate a new dump very often (I am still getting on Feb 15th 2017 my most recent dump from February 7th 2017, it seems). Can you clarify with what frequency you will generate a new dump?
In any case, I think my request to produce a new dump on a daily basis is perfectly reasonable (which is the legal standard), in light of the complexity of Facebook's data mining operation, and the need to have strong tools to properly question and investigate this operation through user-led actions.
