Letter to Facebook Inc. regarding the violation of EU Privacy law

Together with Privacy First Foundation, Bits of Freedom, the Dutch Platform for the Protection of Civil Rights, and two EU-citizens, the PILP wrote a  letter  to Facebook asking the company to stop the transfer of personal data to US authorities. One of the incentives for this letter was the decision of the European Court of Justice in  Schrems v. Data Protection Commissioner.
