Facebook’s ad platform has recently been accused of violating EU privacy laws and is currently embroiled in a regulatory battle with the European Commission over whether it is violating its own data policies.
In April, Facebook said it had implemented a policy that would allow advertisers to use its ad network to target specific audiences on the social network.
Now the European Court of Justice has ruled that Facebook’s advertising platform does not violate EU data protection laws, in a ruling that could have an impact on the company’s business model.
The decision was announced on Thursday, and was delivered by a member of the European Parliament, and it is one of several that Facebook is fighting in the court over whether or not it has violated EU data privacy rules.
The court is due to rule on the issue in April, after an appeal from the Facebook ad platform was rejected in November.
In November, Facebook’s European CEO Mark Zuckerberg had said that the company does not intend to take any legal action against the EU, though it is currently under investigation by the Commission for possible anti-competitive behavior.
The company said that its ad platform is not being used to target ads on the platform, and has a “zero tolerance” policy towards such use.
Facebook’s current approach is that it uses a combination of data mining and artificial intelligence to target audiences on its platform, but it is not the first to try to target users through ads.
In March, Google and the European Union agreed to set up a working group to examine how to improve how advertising works on the platforms, including how to avoid the use of ad targeting by large companies.
Facebook has a lot to lose if the court rules in its favor.
The European Commission has been in the middle of an investigation into whether Facebook is violating EU data rules, after the company had admitted in May to having manipulated some of its users’ news feeds to make it appear that a user had been killed in the US, and a report that the social networking platform had tried to influence the Brexit vote in the UK.
