Is our European Facebook Data safely being transferred to the US?
Facebook user data is stored in the United States on servers owned or managed by Facebook INC, although there is a headquarter here in Europe, located in Dublin and it’s there to oversee the safety agreements about data protection within Europe. The Facebook data exchange between Europe and the US was managed by the Safe Harbour agreement. This agreement was made between the EU and the US to protect EU citizens’ data if transferred by American companies to the US. But what does it mean when the Safe Harbour agreement is declared invalid?
