Yesterday the ECJ gave its long-awaited judgment in the latest instalment of the battle between privacy activist Max Schrems, Facebook and Ireland’s Data Protection Commission.
In this episode of Life with GDPR, we have our first emergency podcast based upon the European Court of Justice’s decision handed down July 16 on the Schrems III case, where the Court invalidated Privacy Shield. Some of the highlights are:
- What were the issues involved in this case?
- What did the Court find wanting in Privacy Shield?
- What are the differences in the European and American approach that led to this result?
- What was the ruling around standard contract clauses for data transfer?
- What are the implications going forward?
The court decided that Standard Contractual Clauses which Facebook used to transfer data to the US were valid but that Privacy Shield, the scheme which the European Commission put in place to replace Safe Harbor, was not.
