Tweak privacy plan – EU

By Andrew Orlowski, 13 Apr 2016

Data protection bods from the EU want more tweaks to Privacy Shield.

The Article 29 Working Group, representing the views of the information commissioners in each EU member state, welcomed the Privacy Shield as a “major improvement” on the old Safe Harbour data protection agreements, which cover flows of personal data between the EU and the USA.

The group says the Shield too complicated and needs better definitions.

It won’t say whether it thinks the Shield is compliant with EU privacy law until it’s passed, though.

Their opinion isn’t binding on the EU Commission.
