What are Standard Contractual Clauses?
As part of a global organization, Meta operates both within and outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). We transfer your data from the EEA for processing in the United States or other countries outside of where you live, which requires us to put in place appropriate safeguards for the transfer of your data under applicable data protection law. For these transfers, we utilize the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission in order to ensure that your data has equivalent levels of protection.
We use the Standard Contractual Clauses for transferring your data to provide the services set forth in the Facebook Terms and Instagram Terms and to globally operate and provide our Products to you. If you're in the EU you can request a copy of the Standard Contractual Clauses, request more information or make a complaint in relation to this transfer of data, contact us.
Alternatively, you can also contact us if your complaint or query relates to another data protection issue.
