The Guardian newspaper notes that the US company Six4Three last week asked a court in California, United States, to use as evidence confidential emails sent among Facebook executives, including Zuckerberg.
According to the source, the company invested around 250,000 dollars in the Pikinis application, which allows tracking the lists of friends of a user of that social network in search of photographs of people in bathing suits.
The program also used a procedure similar to that which allowed Cambridge Analytica to collect data from some 87 million people around the world to influence processes such as the presidential elections in the United States and the referendum on the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union.
The scandal led Zuckerberg last Tuesday before the European Parliament (EP) to apologize for the leaked data, especially from about 2.7 million European users on Facebook.
The British newspaper cites legal representatives of Six4Three, who say that Facebook maneuvered so that tens of thousands of companies developed mobile programs using data access from millions of users as a claim.
The US company says that Facebook communicated that they would have access to a long-term to personal data and information about friends of subscribers to the social network, The Guardian reports.
Despite this, a spokesperson for Facebook said that 'by changing our policy, in 2015, we pointed out with a large margin of time to third-party developers about the changes that could have an impact on their applications,' the newspaper concludes.
