Advisory: Privacy Shield Status
On July 12, 2016 the EU adopted the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. This new framework replaces the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework for data flows between the European Union and United States. DMA applauds the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Agreement which preserves the data flows between the EU and the United States.
The U.S. Department of Commerce indicates that it will begin accepting new applications under the Shield framework on August 1st, 2016. Companies interested in self-certifying under the Privacy Shield Framework should begin reviewing the new requirements and creating a Privacy Shield compliant notice and incorporating these principles into its corporate practices. DMA shall serve as a dispute resolution provider under the EU-US Privacy Shield program (as it has done for Safe Harbor since inception.) Please stay tuned for updated compliance and application materials.
