European Commission attorney Bernhard Schima warned the EU citizens to get rid of their Facebook accounts, if they wanted to keep their information private  from United States intelligence services, Sputnik News reports.

"You might consider closing your Facebook account, if you have one," Schima told attorney general Yves Bot during the  hearing of the case at the European court of justice in Luxembourg; the case  which examined the level of safety of the EU citizens personal information.

In the case the US government’s Prism data collection program,  revealed by Snowden in leaked NSA files, was examined.  It turned out that the  US collection program  breaches the EU’s Data Protection Directive "adequacy" standard for privacy protection. The program  allows  EU citizens’ data that are  held by the US companies to be passed on to US intelligence agencies.
