28/09/2023 | Datatilsynet

The Norwegian data protection authority (DPA), Datatilsynet, has requested the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) make a binding decision about Meta's illegal surveillance-based behavioural advertising practices on its Facebook and Instagram platforms.

The DPA has asked the EDPB for the temporary advertising ban it imposed on the Meta to be made permanent and extended to the rest of the EU/EEA. The DPA explained that it's only authorised to make a temporary decision, which will expire on 3 November.
