Privacy Shield and Standard Contractual Clauses go before the European Courts

This month in Luxembourg, the General Court of the European Union will hear a case against the EU-U.S.

Privacy Shield brought by three French NGOs, in addition to arguments in Schrems II, in which the Irish High Court has referred 11 questions relating to whether the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses provide an adequate level of protection for personal data that is transferred to the U.S. Both judgments could seriously restrict options for lawful data flows into the UK after Brexit.
