Austrian privacy campaign group NOYB has filed a complaint with the Netherlands data protection authority, Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, against X platform unlawfully using the political views and religious beliefs of its users for targeted advertising. The complaint relates to a campaign conducted by the European Commission's Directorate General for Migration and Home Affairs to promote its controversial regulation to fight child sexual abuse. In the complaint, NOYB argues that the company not only violated the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) but also the Digital Services Act (DSA).
The latest development follows a complaint NOYB filed with the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) against the Commission in November.
