What’s Going On?
It’s suspected that NBCUniversal, the owner of CNBC.com, may have secretly shared these users’ data – including which videos they watched on the website – with Facebook through a tracking tool. Attorneys are now gathering CNBC.com users to take action over potential violations of the federal Video Privacy Protection Act.
