The EU-US Privacy Shield is a framework for exchanges of personal data for commercial purposes between the European Union and the United States. One of its purposes is to allow US companies to receive personal data from EU organizations more easily, while complying to the EU privacy laws meant to protect EU citizens. The previous framework, called International Safe Harbor Privacy Principles was declared invalid in October 2015. Discussions about the new framework began immediately and on February 2nd, 2016 a political agreement was reached. On July 12th, 2016 the Commission adopted its decision on the Shield. The new arrangements include strong data protection obligations on companies receiving personal data from the EU as well as safeguards of US government access to data. An annual joint review is envisioned to monitor the implementation.

We know that the GDPR influences any entity that works with EU citizens, even if the entity did not collect the data. Taking into consideration the interconnected and vast online environment, it is obvious the GDPR has immense implications in many sectors and for many businesses. There are significant differences in how the US and the EU perceive privacy. The Article 29 Working Party has issued their opinion on a wide variety of issues from Internet of Things, Cloud computing and more. The GDPR puts a strong emphasis on how data is transferred to third parties, especially to non-EU countries and the US has never been on the green list due to its more relaxed privacy rules and rights. For example, the right to erasure is much more limited and can only be used in special cases, whereas the GDPR gives each individual this right in a much easier manner. The GDPR will bring with it a number of changes, not only to those organizations directly in processing personal data, but it is very possible it will bring changes to the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement. Discussions are still in place, so the topic should be closely monitored in the near future.

The GDPR will bring important changes once it becomes mandatory in 2018. Find out to whom it applies to and what are the changes for data controllers and processors.

he European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation will replace the current 95/46/EC Directive by 2018. Unlike the current Directive, the GDPR will be a law and will have to be adopted by all the countries in the EU.

Those familiar with the Directive will soon notice the GDPR is built on the directive – some aspects remaining the same, others change and new rules are added. For instance, the GDPR puts a much greater emphasis on individual rights, while also bringing bigger fines for non-compliance. It has the purpose of re-conciliating country-specific and sometimes conflicting European data privacy laws.

Most importantly, it aims at changing the way organizations that operate in the EU or that collect personal data from the Union’s citizens, approach data privacy.

Empowering citizens regarding their personal data is one of the main objectives pursued through the Regulation.

As a regulation, the GDPR must be immediately applied across the Union, unlike a directive, that must be transposed by each member state into the national law.

WHO IS GDPR FOR?

One of its important traits is that it will impact every entity that holds or uses European personal data whether they operate inside or outside of Europe. In short, no matter where you are in the world, if you sell goods to European citizens or process their personal data, you have to comply to the GDPR.

This means the regulation will affect many more business than the current Directive, a positive aspect especially for EU citizens who are now more protected, but a less positive change for those businesses outside of the EU who find themselves having to comply with a new set of rules.

This also solves the question many people in the UK have been asking: “does Brexit affect them and their business?” The short answer is that it all comes down to the individuals they work with. As it is unlikely, at least at first, that organizations in the UK will cut down all ties to EU individuals, they should comply to the GDPR, in order to be sure they will avoid unnecessary fines.
