In this podcast Jonathan and Eric discuss a ruling of the European Court of Justice on 29 July 2019 on a challenge from a German consumer organisation, Verbraucherzentrale NRW over the social media likes promoted by fashion ID, a German online clothing retailer.
They discuss the potential ramifications for any business that has social media likes on its website or channels, and the steps organisations may need to take to reduce their liability.
Jonathan talks about a couple of earlier decisions of the European Court of Justice including the Jehovah’s Witnesses case which we have summarised here https://www.corderycompliance.com/european-court-ruling-in-jw-data-protection-case-2-2/ and the Facebook fan page case involving Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein summarised here https://www.corderycompliance.com/client-alert-european-court-facebook-fan-page-ruling/
