Facebook took out full-page ads in European newspapers Monday to trumpet tough new EU legislation that promises "more data protection for you", as the company seeks to win back trust following a damaging privacy scandal.Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who has repeatedly apologized for the massive data breach, last week told the US Congress that the more stringent EU rules could serve as a rough model globally."I was really desperate about thinking how to make the best possible campaign for GDPR so now this is well done, so thank you Mr Zuckerberg," the EU's justice and consumer affairs commissioner Vera Jourova said last Wednesday.Under the new rules, companies will need explicit consent from users to share their data with third parties and people will have the right to know what information is stored about them and to ask for it to be deleted.
