No Safe Harbor for Transatlantic Data Transfers – Guidance for US and Global Businesses

Multnomah Athletic Club
1849 SW Salmon St.
Portland, OR 97205, US (map)



The European Court of Justice has ruled that the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework for cross-border data transfers is inadequate. What are the implications for US companies who do business with individuals and entities in the EU, transact business in the cloud, or handle consumer data that crosses borders? How will this affect your company’s privacy policy and contractual relationships with customers and vendors? What are best practices for moving forward with model contract provisions, binding corporate rules, and/or reliance on derogations?
