Safe Harbor is now EU-US Privacy Shield

February 3rd 2016 in safety and privacy on the Internet

“After months of intensive negotiations, today (February 2) the European Commission and the United States announced agreement on a new framework for transatlantic data flows: the EU-US Privacy Shield.

This new framework will protect the rights of Europeans where their data is transferred to the United States and provide a path to legal certainty for the thousands of businesses that had previously relied on Safe Harbor for their international data transfers. The framework should be in place within three months.”
