Data Breach Privacy

Facebook sued for violating privacy

The Consumers’ Association and the Data Privacy Foundation “Data Privacy Stichting (DPS)”. Have joined forces to force Facebook to pay compensation via a subpoena. The Consumers’ Association calls on consumers to join the campaign.

Facebook thus enriched itself unjustified and at the expense of its users.
