Facebook's "GDPR bypass" gets validated by the Irish DPC.

The Irish Data Protection Commission just validated Facebook's "unusual" reading of the GDPR. Facebook having its European HQ in Ireland doesn't inspire faith in their impartiality, of course.

Max Schrems:

The DPC developed the 'GDPR bypass' with Facebook, that it is now greenlighting as a regulator. Instead of a regulator, it acts as a ‘big tech’ advisor.

It's probable the other European DPCs won't let this pass but it's more proof the system needs an overhaul.
