Belgian regulator pushes ahead with Facebook cookies case

Wednesday 17 May 2017 | 15:51 CET | News
Belgium's privacy regulator is pushing ahead with its case against Facebook for processing personal data without users' consent. The Privacy Commission said it adopted a new technical and legal analysis in April that shows Facebook is still violating the law on personal data protection. The Belgian regulator started its case against Facebook in 2015 and is coordinating its action with its counterparts in France, Spain, the Netherlands and Hamburg. A hearing in the regulator's court case is scheduled for October.
