A Dutch court hearing a class action lawsuit on Wednesday found that a European subsidiary of Meta, Facebook Ireland, improperly used personal data of Dutch citizens between 2010 and 2020, saying the company had 'violated the law.' From a report: 'Personal information was processed for the purposes of advertising when in this case that is not allowed,' a summary of the Amsterdam court ruling said. 'Personal information was given to third parties without Facebook users being informed and without there being a legal basis to do so.'

The case has not yet progressed to the phase where any damages could be claimed.
