Austria Orders Compensation In Facebook Data Case
Vienna, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 20th Jul, 2021 ) :Austria's highest court has ordered Facebook to compensate a privacy activist after failing to provide him full access to his data, he said Tuesday.
The Austrian Supreme Court decided Max Schrems would get 500 Euros ($590), finding the activist neither "got all the raw data, nor crucial information like the legal basis that his data was processed" by Facebook, his group NOYB said in a statement.
NOYB was set up in 2018, at the same time as the European Union implemented its landmark General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), legislation aimed at making it simpler for people to control how companies use their personal information.
