WhatsApp to Move Ahead with its Privacy Updates

Hi Mwara,

Many thanks for leading todays discussion, how does Whatsapp plan to ensure
that it complies with local Data Protection Laws with respect to Data
Minimization? I am also keen to know which measures will be taken to ensure
that the data collected is accurate for those who may need the data for
business purposes.
