Germany: FCO to hold press conference on Facebook decision

 |  February 5, 2019

The Bundeskartellamt will hold a press conference on Thursday, February 7, 2019 at 10am (GMT+1) to conclude its Facebook investigation.

The president of the Federal Cartel Office, Andreas Mundt, will give important information, data, and facts about the Facebook procedure and will answer questions after the announcement.

The probe is one of many that the social networking company faces over the handling of customer data throughout Europe.

The German probe is targeting the way Facebook collects information on how users surf to drive its advertising revenue. The Bundeskartellamt, the regulator’s German name, has been probing the terms since 2016 and last year several times postponed the final decisions.w

The full decision will be published some weeks later.
