Facebook loses Belgian privacy case, faces fine up to $125 million

BRUSSELS: A Belgian court threatened Facebook with a fine of up to 100 million euros ($ 125 million) if it continued to break privacy laws by tracking people on third party websites.

In a case brought by Belgium’s privacy watchdog, the court also ruled on Friday that Facebook had to delete all data it had gathered illegally on Belgian citizens, including people who were not Facebook users themselves.
