Campaigners warn over Privacy Shield enhancements
European privacy campaigner Max Schrems is warning that enhancements to the EU-US Privacy Shield data-sharing arrangements might face a legal challenge if negotiators don’t take a new approach.
In an open letter, Schrems – the lawyer behind the Schrems II ruling which put an end to the transatlantic data-sharing agreement – said that US assurances of EU citizens’ data privacy would be insufficient to avoid another legal challenge.
Schrems said the view was based on “preliminary observations” of the political statements, rather than the final text which is still being negotiated. However, he warned that unless the concerns of his campaign group noyb (none of your business) were addressed, the EU could look forward to another legal challenge.
