After more than two years of negotiations with the U.S., the European Commission officially adopted the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield arrangement Tuesday. Appearing together with U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, EU Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová announced the deal earlier today in Brussels. Jourová said the new deal is fundamentally different from the previous Safe Harbor arrangement, notably because of the annual joint review, which will allow the EU to address any issues as they arise. In this post for The Privacy Tracker, Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP, culls together remarks from both sides of the Atlantic, reaction from several U.S. tech companies, and criticism from members of the European Parliament and civil society.
