BERLIN - Germany's competition authority is investigating whether Facebook abused its market position by breaching data protection laws.
The competition authority says Facebook demands users agree to terms that are "hard to comprehend" and there are "considerable doubts about the admissibility of this practice especially under the current national data protection law."
Facebook didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
The company was fined 100,000 euros ($109,000) by a Berlin court last month over intellectual property rules.
