Microsoft declared its support for the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield on Monday, the first U.S. high-profile tech company to do so, Reuters reports. “First and foremost, at Microsoft we believe that privacy is a fundamental human right,” said Microsoft’s Vice President EU Government Affairs John Frank in a blog post. “We recognize that privacy rights need to have effective remedies. We have reviewed the Privacy Shield documentation in detail, and we believe wholeheartedly that it represents an effective framework and should be approved,” he continued. "We welcome the fact that companies already commit to using the Privacy Shield and complying with its obligations," said European Commission spokesman Christian Wigand.
