Facebook Responds to the European Commission’s Inquiry

We respect the Commission’s process and are confident that a full review of the facts will confirm Facebook has acted in good faith. We’ve consistently provided accurate information about our technical capabilities and plans, including in submissions about the WhatsApp acquisition and in voluntary briefings before WhatsApp’s privacy policy update this year. We’re pleased that the Commission stands by its clearance decision, and we will continue to cooperate and share information officials need to resolve their questions.
