BALMEDIE, Scotland (AP) — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is well-known in this serene coastal section of Scotland, where shimmering golden sand dunes meet the ice-blue North Sea and people play on his golf course.

Facebook and other Internet giants could be barred from sending European citizens' personal information to the US after the EU's top court on Tuesday struck down a key transatlantic data deal in the wake of the Edward Snowden scandal. The landmark verdict stemmed from a case lodged by Austrian law student Max Schrems, who challenged the "Safe Harbour" agreement between Washington and Brussels in 2000 on the grounds it did not properly protect European data. The European Court of Justice said authorities in Ireland, where Schrems lodged the case, now have to decide whether transfers of data from Facebook's European base to its HQ in the United States should be suspended outright.
