Who we represent in the actions against Meta
The Data Privacy Stichting (Foundation) – in collaboration with Consumentenbond – initiated two actions against Meta, the owner of Facebook and Instagram.
The first action is the legal proceedings brought by the Foundation against Facebook, which is about sharing personal data with third parties without informing its users in a proper manner and by using personal data for advertising purposes without the required permission. For this first action you belong to the group of Aggrieved Parties if you have been a Facebook user at any time from April 1, 2010 to January 1, 2020 and lived in the Netherlands.
The second action is about the illegal transfer of personal data of Facebook and Instagram users to the US without adequate protection against government surveillance. For this second action, you belong to the group of Aggrieved Parties if you are or have been a user of Facebook and/or Instagram at any time from May 25, 2018 onwards and lived in the Netherlands.
If you belong to the group of Aggrieved Parties for one or both actions, the Foundation and Consumentenbond call on you to stand up for your rights and join one or both actions. For information on how to sign up for one or both actions against Meta, see www.consumentenbond.nl/acties/facebook.
