Facebook Inc. was accused of Big Brother-style snooping on internet users in a fresh attack on the social network by Belgium’s data privacy watchdog.
The regulator sought a court order on Thursday forcing Facebook to stop any collection of data for advertising purposes and the provision of “misleading” information to users, under the threat of a 250,000€ ($296,000) daily penalty. The company said it disagreed with the allegations.
