German Antitrust Component of GDPR Consent - Bundeskartellamt"s Facebook Decision

On 7 February 2019, the German Bundeskartellamt (Federal Antitrust Authority) published in English “background information” on its Facebook decision imposing on Facebook far-reaching restrictions in the processing of user data. In the authority's assessment, Facebook's terms and conditions on processing user data are neither justified under data protection principles nor appropriate under competition law standards. Surprisingly, the Bundeskartellamt offers its own interpretation of GDPR's concept of "free consent", despite not beeing responsible for data protection as federal authority. For an accurate critique see Härting, "The German Antitrust Authority’s Interpretation of GDPR Consent – Facebook Decision", CRonline Blog, 8 February 2019
