Dutch court rejects Facebook’s attempt to reject Dutch privacy lawsuit

Dutch court rejects Facebook’s attempt to reject Dutch privacy lawsuit

Facebook didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment Saturday, but told TechCrunch it was reviewing the court’s decision, noting that the ruling was procedural. “Users have meaningful control over the data that they share on Facebook and we provide transparency around how their data is used.”

As TechCrunch reported, the Amsterdam-based Data Privacy Foundation and Dutch consumer advocacy organization Consumentenbond are suing Facebook on behalf of users over what they claim are violations of European Union privacy law. The lawsuit says Facebook has not provided enough details about the information it gathers from users, including what it does with the data, and therefore doesn’t have a legal basis to process the information. Facebook tried to block the lawsuit claiming that the Amsterdam court doesn’t have jurisdiction over its European business, which it argues is subject to Irish law. The Court of Amsterdam disagreed, writing in its decision that “The Data Privacy Foundation may litigate before the Dutch court on behalf of Dutch users of the Facebook service against Facebook about whether Facebook has violated the privacy of its users.”
