GDPR-Compliant Organizations: Why You May Need an EU Representative

July 7, 2021 at 11:14 AM - GDPR,

The General Date Protection Regulation (GDPR) made its debut on the global privacy stage in 2018, and now, three years later, most U.S. companies doing business in the EU are well-aware of the regulation’s main provisions and their daily operational impact. However, the GDPR’s rules are expansive; and as a result, some of its “lesser known” articles have been overlooked by a number of smaller companies with limited in-house privacy resources.

The Privacy Shield is Dead: Next Steps for U.S. Importers of EU Data

April 1, 2021 at 11:05 AM - EU Data Protection,

Since the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), U.S. companies have invested a great deal of time and money in their compliance efforts; yet for many, their work is far from complete. For U.S. data importers, the July 2020 invalidation of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield has left former “self-certified Shield” companies forced to find a new mechanism by which to lawfully transfer EU data into the U.S. Many of these companies will likely adopt the new set of standard contractual clauses (SCCs), once they are finalized by the European Commission.

The Privacy Shield is Dead: Here Come the New SCCs

February 19, 2021 at 4:16 PM - EU Laws,

As we reported last year, the invalidation of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield on July 16, 2020 is forcing the hand of U.S. companies which access the personal data of EU residents to find a new, lawful mechanism by which to do so in accordance with EU data protection laws. One such alternative – the use of the EU’s standard contractual clauses (SCCs) (a/k/a “Model Clauses”) – was recently bolstered by much-needed proposed updates to the clauses themselves.

California’s Evolving Privacy Law Landscape

December 28, 2020 at 2:44 PM - compliance,

Just as the ink had dried on what we thought was the CA Attorney General’s final set of regulations for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a new, fourth draft set was submitted earlier this month, building upon the third draft set issued in October. Both sets of regs have yet to be finalized.

CCPA: The Final Regulations Are Out, Enforcement Can Begin!

July 27, 2020 at 12:59 PM - CCPA,

Enforcement of the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), which went into effect on January 1, 2020, officially started on July 1st. But instead of feeling prepared, many companies are still grappling with how this legislation will impact their operations. In fact, the CCPA has been widely regarded as “unfinished business” since its expedited passage in 2018.

The Privacy Shield is Dead: Now What?

July 17, 2020 at 1:14 PM - Privacy,

After years of uncertainty, the fate of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield (“Shield”) has finally been determined. On July 16th, the EU’s highest court, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), declared the Shield to be invalid as a lawful mechanism for transferring the personal data of EU residents to the U.S.

June 29, 2020 at 3:21 PM - GDPR,

If a poll was taken of all U.S. companies using the personal information of European Union (EU) residents in connection with their business activities, most would report having taken steps to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you asked the same businesses what they have done to comply with the EU ePrivacy Directive of 2002 (also known as the “Cookies” Directive)[1], which regulates the use of cookies and other tracking technologies, many would need to admit they have not done anything.
