Invalidation of Privacy Shield

General Counsel

As most lawyers know, Privacy Shield was invalidated last month. This means that data flows from the EU to the US happening right now are at high risk…

In the last week only, complaints were filed against 101 European websites for illegally transferring data to the US using Google Analytics or Facebook Connect.

By using these websites or other US-based tools, such as Zoom, Salesforce or Mailchimp, many organisations may be unwittingly in violation of GDPR. Action is required to assess whether you still have a legal basis to transfer data to the US and/or to find alternative European tools to avoid any data transfer abroad.

Updates to come, watch this space…
