The television commercial did not prevent the money from being blocked from sending data to the 410 million European users in the United States.
Ireland’s data regulator could resume an investigation into a possible ban on Facebook’s transatlantic transfer, the Supreme Court ruled Friday, raising hopes of suspending the company’s warnings it could jeopardize its business.
The report comes from the European Union (EU), which maintains that the United States government does not respect the privacy of EU citizens when their information is sent to the United States for use.
The Republic of Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC), Facebook’s chief executive in the EU, launched an investigation in August and issued a temporary injunction stating that the main method Facebook uses to transfer EU users to the US “cannot be used”.
Facebook has denied the request and the original concept (PDD), saying it threatens the “destructive” and “immutable” of its businesses, which rely on fixing what users will use online ads.
The Supreme Court denied this on Friday.
“I deny everything the FBI wanted [Facebook Ireland] and dismissed the allegations, ”Judge David Barniville ruled in his favor.
“The FBI has not established any objections to the DPC’s decision or the PDD’s or the DPC’s inquiry options,” the court said.
While the idea doesn’t just stop the immediate release, Austrian privacy activist Max Schrems, who has forced the Irish data officer to commit several crimes over the past eight years, said he believes the ruling has made it impossible.
“Eight years later, the DPC now has to suspend Facebook and US-US missions, probably before summer,” he said.
A Facebook spokesman said the company hopes to protect its compliance with EU rules because the Irish regulatory law “could harm not only Facebook, but also users and other businesses”.
If the Irish data regulator follows a temporary system, it could eliminate potential U.S. companies with more from Europe and position them in the same way as foreign companies outside the bloc.
The machine questioned by the Irish authorities, the standard contractual clause (SCC), was approved by the European Court of Justice in a decision in July.
But the Court of Justice also ruled that, under SCCs, secrecy guards should stop or restrict deportation if the security of information in other countries cannot be guaranteed.
A Facebook lawyer in December told the Supreme Court that Ireland’s legal proposal, if it did, could “have a negative impact” on Facebook’s business, which could affect 410 million Facebook users in Europe, politically harassing political parties and violating freedom of speech.
Irish Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon in February said many companies could face many difficulties in transatlantic translation as a result of a European Court of Justice ruling.
Dixon’s office received the election Friday, but declined to comment.
