Safe Harbour / EU-U.S. Privacy Shield FAQs July 2016

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) officially struck down the so-called Safe Harbour framework in 2015. Since then work has been underway to agree a new deal to allow the transfer of personal data from the EU to the U.S, resulting in the announcement of the EU – U.S. Privacy Shield in February 2016. 

These FAQs give background on Safe Harbour, an update on the legislative journey of the EU – U.S. Privacy Shield and offer guidance for companies about what to do now.
