CJEU to Address EU-US Data Protection in Schrems II

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) is expected to rule on the validity of the current data transfer processes for personal data flowing across the EU border from companies within the EU. In Data Protection Commission v. Facebook Ireland Limited, Maximillian Schrems (C-113/18) the CJEU will for the second time in five years review the privacy safeguards required by EU law when a company like Facebook Ireland Limited sends personally collected data to servers location in the United States.
