I do not authorize Facebook / Meta or any of the Facebook/Meta related organizations to use my images, information, messages or posts, either in the past or in the future. With this statement, I announce on Facebook / Meta that it is strictly forbidden to copy, notify or take any other action of mine based on this profile and / or its content. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. Violation of privacy can be punished by law: Facebook / Meta is now a public institution. All members must post this note. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this post.
If you do not post a statement at least once, your photos and profile updates will be allowed to be used.
DO NOT NOTIFY.
Copy and paste.
