Senator Alexei Pushkov in his Telegram channel noted that the “arbitrariness and greed” of global network platforms can be successfully combated – this confirms the method chosen by Australia, China and now Ireland, which allowed to continue the procedure that could prohibit Facebook from transferring user data from EU to US.
In Ireland, it was allowed to continue with a procedure that could prohibit Facebook from transferring user data from the EU to the United States. Senator Aleksey Pushkov commented on the news with his channel, noting that the method that Iceland has chosen confirms that the “arbitrariness and greed” of global network platforms can be successfully combated.
Pushkov also recalled the similar experience of Australia, the EU, China, Turkey. Earlier, the Data Protection Commission (DPC) of the Republic of Ireland, the leading regulator of Facebook in the EU, issued a preliminary ruling stating that the mechanism that the social network uses to transfer data from European users “cannot be used in practice.”
Facebook has challenged the decision, saying it threatens “devastating” and “irreversible” business consequences.
Now the High Court of Ireland has rejected the corporation’s complaint, and Facebook will probably have to reorganize the system and create server centers in the EU or temporarily not serve Europeans, The Wall Street Journal notes.
