Facebook keeps sending data from European users

European data protection organization Noyb has published detailed information on the ongoing transfer of European personal data to the United States in 86 pages of Facebook's internal review.

Facebook continues to transfer user data from the European Union to the United States, despite two Supreme Court rulings (also known as Schrems I and Schrems II) that the United States is a dangerous jurisdiction for such data.

More than a year ago, the EU data protection authority also issued an injunction, ruling that the EU and the USA must stop data transfers following the Schrems II ruling.

It's been nearly a year since Ireland's data protection authority resolved Noybs' legal issues and agreed in January to close the complaint.

Ireland has yet to make a final decision on the legality of the transfer of Facebook data between the European Union and the United States. It's been nearly 8.5 years since Noeb founder and CEO Max Schrems first filed a complaint.

If the data suspension order is enforced in the European Union, the tech giant may have to make drastic changes to its business model or shut down services in Europe. This is a possibility that Facebook mentioned in its previous legal request. But Nick Clegg quickly denied that the company could do this.

Facebook ignored EU law for 8.5 years

Facebook is more willing to use economic intimidation tactics to pressure EU lawmakers to oppose the rule of law.

This shows that any suspension of the Facebook data feed will lead to economic losses for European small and medium-sized businesses using advertising tools to target consumers.

The company was able to take legal action to delay the final countdown to data transmission problems by several years. But his business model is now under attack in several ways.

The European Parliament is pushing for stricter limits on behavioral advertising and a complete ban on dark mode in digital market law.

"Facebook ignored EU law for 8.5 years," Shrems said. The documents show that she believed the court was wrong. Therefore, the company hopes to maintain the confidentiality of this document. The document states that the company has no legal defense due to the ongoing transfer of European data to the United States.
