Criteo Files Complaint With The French Competition Authority Against Facebook

NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Criteo S.A. (CRTO), the advertising platform for the open Internet, filed on September 10, 2019 a complaint with the French Competition Authority against Facebook.

Criteo believes that the gradual exclusion of companies from the Facebook platform has adversely impacted the diversity of the online advertising industry.

The objective of the complaint is to recreate conditions of a level playing field for the industry by restoring Criteo and other companies' ability to access the Facebook platform on fair terms, and establishing clear and transparent guidelines to prevent Facebook from unfairly favoring its own services on its platform at the expense of its competitors'.
