(AP) Facebook says that an independent audit found its privacy practices sufficient during a six-month assessment period that was part of a settlement with federal regulators.


Facebook Inc. said it submitted the findings to the Federal Trade Commission on Monday. The audit was required as part of the social networking company's settlement with the FTC last summer. The settlement resolved charges that Facebook exposed information about users without getting the required legal consent.


Facebook provided a copy of its letter to the FTC along with a redacted copy of the auditor's letter, to The Associated Press. Facebook says the redacted portion contains trade secret information and does not alter the auditor's findings. The name of the accounting firm is also redacted.


The audit covered written policies as well as its data.
