Austrian law student Max Schrems and his Europe Versus Facebook group have been a thorn in Facebook’s side since challenging the social network’s privacy policies in 2011, and they are now going after bigger game: Safe Harbor, the agreement between the U.S. and the European Union that gives more than 3,000 U.S. companies -- including Facebook, Google and Apple -- the ability to capture personal data from European users.
