Salesforce and Oracle face class action in the Netherlands and the UK

A campaign group, The Privacy Collective, claims that Salesforce and Oracle are in breach of the EU GDPR in terms of aggregating information collected from websites, and profiling.

The Privacy Collective will pursue the class action in the Netherlands where the case is being fully funded by Innsworth, a litigation funder. A class representative will pursue the claim in England & Wales through the High Court in London.

Any person who, since 25 May 2018, has been the subject of third-party tracking cookies and who is resident in a jurisdiction in which a claim is being made, may be eligible for compensation. Based on previous judgements, the amount of compensation could be in the region of €500 per person, the Privacy Collective says.

Both Salesforce and Oracle have stated that they will defend the claims.
