HireAbility Announces EU-US Privacy Shield Certification
What is the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement and how can it help our clients? The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield imposes stronger obligations on U.S. companies to protect Europeans’ personal data. It reflects the requirements of the European Court of Justice, which ruled the previous Safe Harbour framework invalid.
This new framework protects the fundamental rights of anyone in the EU whose personal data is transferred to the United States as well as bringing legal clarity for businesses relying on transatlantic data transfers. The Privacy Shield requires the U.S. to monitor and enforce more robustly, and cooperate more with European Data Protection Authorities.
For our clients both in the U.S. and in Europe, this means that there is more transparency about transfers of personal data to the U.S. and stronger protection of personal data. In addition it ensures easier and cheaper redress possibilities in case of complaints — directly or with the help of their local Data Protection Authority.
