HBO shares the viewing history with Facebook

Did HBO forget about the Video Privacy Protection Act, a US act passed in 1988? A class action lawsuit alleges it shares the viewing history of its’ subscribers with Facebook, without their consent.
“HBO Max has a privacy policy on its website, in which it discloses that it and its partners use cookies to deliver personalized ads, among other purposes. But the VPPA requires that subscribers give separate consent to share their video viewing history.” The Video Privacy Protection Act is part of the complex world of US privacy laws that companies must understand if they’re doing business in the US.
