The Austrian-based privacy advocacy group NOYB has published the Irish Data Protection Commission's (DPC) final decisions against Facebook and Instagram, which invalidated Meta's performing a contract legal basis for seeking user permission to collect data for targeted advertising and resulted in a €390 million fine. In the post, NOYB examines the decisions and highlights how it "clearly shows massive disagreement" between the DPC and the European Data Protection Board with Austrian, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese and Swedish data protection authorities all raising formal objections to the DPC's draft decision. It's a compelling read, in which NOYB concludes it may have to launch an appeal. Meanwhile, an excellent Twitter thread by IAPP Research and Insight Director Joe Jones analyses each step of this long-running saga.
