Competition challenge to Facebook’s ‘superprofiling’ of users sparks referral to Europe’s top court

A German court that’s considering Facebook’s appeal against a pioneering pro-privacy order by the country’s competition authority to stop combining user data without consent has said it will refer questions to Europe’s top court.

The latest development means another long wait to see whether competition law innovation can achieve what the EU’s privacy regulators have so far failed to do — with multiple GDPR challenges against Facebook still sitting undecided on the desk of the Irish Data Protection Commission. Referrals to the EU’s Court of Justice can take years to return a final interpretation.
