The OCU files a class action lawsuit against Facebook for irregular transfer of data from Spanish users


The Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) has filed a complaint against the social network Facebook for using the data of users without their knowledge or consent.

As reported by the organization, the suit in the Commercial Court of Madrid, has been filed by the "Irregular transfer of data", after the denunciations of the last scandals and the violation of the rights and the privacy of the consumers on the part of the social network created by Marck Zuckerberg.

According to the OCU, Facebook has breached the Data Protection Law, and not only with users affected by the Cambridge Analytica scandal or similar, but with all users of the social network in Spain, whose data "has been collected and exchanged without having been informed or granted express consent."

Several months ago OCU, like other European consumer organizations, started a campaign that aimed to defend the rights and interests of Facebook users, whose data has been used without their knowledge or consent.

In addition, the OCU requests the nullity of certain clauses of the terms and conditions of Facebook, for being abusive or for its lack of transparency and requires that it cease its incorporation and prohibit the incorporation of those clauses in the future.

The OCU requests in its claim compensation of at least 200 euros for each of the Facebook members in Spain.
