I agree that the decision is absurd, ridiculous, and contradictory. It is being appealed. The German court that ruled stated that because Ireland is where Facebook personal data is kept (incorrect), rather than Germany, Irish law applies.
The head of the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner (ULD) ULD Thilo Weichert commented the decisions: "The decisions are more than amazing, and go out into the argument about the argument of Facebook, the inapplicability of the German data protection law justified it by Facebook Inc. in the U.S. was only the Data Processor of Facebook Ireland Ltd.. They are contradictory when they explain the lack of legal relevance of Facebook Germany so that there is no data would be processed at the same time but the company in Ireland to assume jurisdiction, although there is no data to be processed.
The decisions of the Administrative Court of Schleswig would result in a one-stop-shop system such as in a European privacy basic regulation -. Combined with a sophisticated system of cooperation of supervisors - is planned for the IT companies would not be required It would depend only on making the group structure as it does Facebook, so explain to an office in an EU member state with a low level of data protection jurisdiction. This was not the intention of the European Union regulation. "
Therefore, the ULD will appeal the decisions of the Administrative Court of Schleswig before the Schleswig-Holstein Higher Administrative Court and appeal against this complaint."
