Submission on EU-US Data Transfers (CJEU)

Aug 31, 2018

noyb is now also supporting the case by Max Schrems on EU-US data transfers. This second case was triggered after the “Safe Harbor” judgement and is basically a second reference on the same case.

Currently EU law (“SCCs”) are used by Facebook Ireland to transfer data to US servers. Under US law the NSA has access to these servers without any individualized judicial approval. All non-US data that is stored in US “cloud” serviced is therefore not properly protected, as it would be foreseen under EU law.

We have so far not received the translations of the submissions, but expect them in January 2018. The hearing of the case will likely take place soon thereafter. A judgement mid of 2019 is likely.
