Google signs up for new EU-US privacy shield terms

Tuesday 30 August 2016 | 09:13 CET | News
Google has submitted its official application to sign up to the new 'Privacy Shield' framework developed jointly by the US Department of Commerce and the European Commission. "We are committed to applying the protections of the Privacy Shield to personal data transferred between Europe and the United States," said the company in a blog post. The bilateral agreement has been in force since 12 July and replaces the previous 'safe harbour' designation for the US, which was struck down by the European Court of Justice for not meeting EU privacy standards.
