EPIC Seeks Release of "Privacy Shield," Secret Data Transfer Agreement

EPIC has filed emergency Freedom of Information requests with the US and the EU for release of a secret agreement for the transfer of personal data across the Atlantic. A new framework was required by a recent decision of the European Court of Justice. But European and American consumer organizations say the "Privacy Shield" does not provide adequate protection for the transfer of personal data. EPIC stated, “The public has a right to know whether this agreement provides adequate legal protection.” EPIC previously obtained the secret EU-US Umbrella Agreement in FOIA litigation.
