Politics: Statement by EU Commissioner Věra Jourová on finalisation of EU-US negotiations on data protection "Umbrella Agreement"


"...Once in force, this agreement will guarantee a high level of protection of all personal data when transferred between law enforcement authorities across the Atlantic. It will in particular guarantee that all EU citizens have the right to enforce their data protection rights in US courts – as called for in the political guidelines of President Juncker last year...I am also confident that we will be able to soon conclude our work on strengthening the Safe Harbour Arrangement for exchange of data for commercial purposes. We continue to work with determination with our US counterparts on the final details," says Věra Jourová, EU´s Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality. Read full Statement.
