On July 12, 2016 the EU adopted the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework which was negotiated by the EU and U.S. Department of Commerce. This new framework replaces the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and preserves data flows between the European Union and United States.
The Privacy Shield Framework provides a set of robust and enforceable protections for the personal data of EU individuals. The Framework provides transparency regarding how participating companies use personal data, strong U.S. government oversight, and increased cooperation with EU data protection authorities (DPAs). The Privacy Shield Framework offers EU individuals access to multiple avenues to address any concerns regarding participants’ compliance with the Framework, including free dispute resolution which the DMA provides to participating member companies.
