Shares

On 14 July, Ecommerce Europe co-signed a letter on EU-US data flows sent to U.S. Secretary Raimondo and EU Commissioner Reynders on the occasion of one-year anniversary of the ‘Schrems II’ ruling by the EU Court of Justice, which invalidated the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework. The judges ruled that Washington did not provide sufficient legal protections for Europeans when their digital information was shipped to the US., and American bulk data surveillance (of foreigners) did not meet EU privacy standards. The signatories urge the U.S. and the EU to swiftly ensure an agreement for secure transatlantic data flows that in turn will strengthen trade, investment, technological cooperation, and reinvigorate the transatlantic partnership.
