Facebook Legal Battle Begins In Belgium

The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing

25 September 2015. A legal case against Facebook has begun in Belgium. The Belgian Privacy Protection Commission has accused the social network of tracking users without their consent. The Commission said that Facebook's practices amounted to them “trampling” on European privacy laws. They also accused the social network of being evasive when it came to answering questions and of not providing clear answers about what it was using the tracking data for. Facebook has hit back against the Belgian Commission, throwing doubt on their authority and claiming that the social network complies with Irish privacy laws, where the company's European headquarters is based. A spokesperson from the Belgian Privacy Protection Commission has urged prosecutors in the case not to be “intimidated” by Facebook. Facebook is confident it will not be found guilty of any wrongdoing and has described the legal proceedings as “unnecessary”.
