Facebook misused Dutch data, court finds

Facebook “broke the law” by “improperly using” personal data belonging to the citizens of The Netherlands between 2010 and 2020. This was said during the hearing of a class action lawsuit in a Dutch court against Facebook Ireland, the social media giant’s European subsidiary.

In a summary, the ruling of the Amsterdam court said that “personal information was processed for the purposes of advertising when in this case that is not allowed”.
