Websites Using Facebook “Like” Button Are Responsible for User Privacy

The Court of Justice for the European Union has ruled websites embedding the Facebook “like” button are responsible for user privacy.

In Fashion ID v Verbraucherzentrale NRW, the Court stated FashionID can be held jointly responsible with Facebook for compliance with Europe’s data protection rules. Facebook’s tracking technique collects the personal data of visitors to a third-party website and transfers it to Facebook.
