Now Facebook confronted by overseas data-privacy fight

It’s not like all of the headwinds Facebook is confronting have died down. Just off a grilling by Congress, CEO Mark Zuckerberg still has many responses to prepare for members.

The stock still is down.

Some celebs are dropping out already.

And the general public is questioning whether or not the social-media platform can be trusted.

Now comes a new case over Facebook’s transfer of personal data from overseas subsidiaries into the United States.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center reports the Irish High Court has sent 11 questions to the European Court of Justice for review in a case called Data Protection Commissioner v. Facebook.

“The case considers whether Facebook’s transfers of data from Ireland to the United States violate the European Charter of Fundamental Rights. The case follows the 2015 landmark decision Schrems v. DPC, which found that the U.S. had insufficient privacy law to protect the personal data of Europeans,” EPIC said.
