Facebook Was Asked to Stop EU to US Data Transfer

Facebook Was Asked to Stop EU to US Data Transfer

Max Schrems, now the well-known Austrian privacy campaigner, continues to demand that three European states stop Facebook from transferring data of the EU citizens to the United States. Schrems became known when he was a student – for successfully initiating a privacy campaign and prompting the ECJ to invalidate the Safe Harbour agreement. Now he is trying to force through the consequences of that court decision.


Max Schrems has already filed 3 separate complaints with the Irish, German and Belgian data protection agencies, pointing out that the social network fails to request explicit consent to transfer the data from Facebook Ireland to Facebook Inc in the United States. Besides, Schrems complains that Facebook can’t guarantee the protection of EU citizens’ data from US government surveillance and asks agencies to prevent Facebook from transferring data. All the complaints ask the data protection agencies to levy appropriate measures against Facebook to suspend data flows between the continents.

Schrems dismisses the protections of other agreements and contracts for transferring user information outside of the now invalid Safe Harbour agreement, because they all have exceptions for cases of “illegal mass surveillance”. At the same time, the privacy campaigner understands that such a halt to data transfer between the EU and US would have serious consequences for all tech firms, not just Facebook. Schrems suggests to give Facebook a “reasonable implementation period” to let it make other arrangements.

At the moment, the European Union and the United States are in negotiations over a new Safe Harbour agreement, while Facebook remains the target of this kind of lawsuits and complaints.

fusseltier avatarpersonal data shouldn't be being sent from europe to the states...
thankfully the EU has better privacy laws and the people have more rights than americans do...
sounds like the US tries to get around it by using facebook to do their dirty work.
only losers use facebook anyway, so who cares.
