Facebook succeeds in blocking German FCO’s order against combining user data

Facebook has succeeded in blocking the order by Germany’s Federal Cartel Office earlier this year that would have banned it from combining data on users across its own suite of social platforms — Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp — without their consent.

Facebook appealed, delaying application of the order, and ruling by the Dusseldorf court grants a suspension. The FCO has a month to lodge an appeal.
