Safe Harbor Agreement Privacy

On August 8, 2014, the Center for Digital Democracy issued a complaint about 30 U.S. companies that do not protect privacy in Europe. The complaint filed with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) describes how these companies collect, use and transmit personal data of EU consumers without their knowledge and reasonable consent, in violation of the Safe Harbor framework. On 19 July 2013, Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the European Commission, told the Vilnius Justice Council: “The Safe Harbour Agreement may not be so secure. This may be a loophole for data transfer, because it allows the transfer of data from the EU to US companies, although US data protection standards are below our European standards. Reding announced a robust evaluation of the Safe Harbor Agreement, which will be presented before the end of the year.

Examine Mr. Schrems` case “with the utmost care” and … decide whether … the transmission of the personal data of European subscribers to Facebook to the United States should be suspended.” [1] EU regulators have stated that if the ECJ and the US do not negotiate a new system within three months, companies could face complaints from European data protection authorities. On October 29, 2015, a new “Safe Harbour 2.0” agreement appeared to be close to being concluded. [24] However, CommissionerJourova expects the United States to act next. [25] American NGOs quickly expanded the importance of the decision. [26] Letter of 28 January 2016 concerning the FTC`s commitment to consumer privacy and the enforcement of the SAFE harbor regime between the United States and the European Union: an amendment to the Judicial Redress Act (JRA) has been added, which could lead to further disruptions in negotiations between the US and the EU to replace the security sphere. The added language refers to the transmission of personal data for commercial purposes between certified countries and the United States, and adds requirements that the U.S.
