Facebook appealing order by Ireland’s privacy regulator that could halt EU-US data transfers

Facebook is appealing a preliminary order from the Irish Data Protection Commission (IDPC) that the social media company says would require it to stop data transfers between the US and the European Union.

The IDPC sent a preliminary order to Facebook last month directing the company to suspend data transfers to the US about EU users. The order is the first attempt by an EU regulator to enforce a ruling by the EU’s Court of Justice, which invalidated Privacy Shield, a data-sharing protocol that allowed American companies to transfer personal information about EU citizens to the US for processing.
