Privacy Sheild

Privacy Shield is an informal agreement between the United States and the European Union. It specified regulations that were designed to ensure that any transfer of personal data from within the European Union to the United States conforms to the data protection standards of the EU. It included a number of assurances from the government of the United States as well as an adequacy decision that formulated the legal basis for the transfer of data across the two regions. It was overturned by the European Court of Justice in 2020.
