07 Jul Center for Digital Democracy Tells EU to Drop Privacy Shield with US
In a letter to the European Union (EU), the Center for Digital Democracy (CDD) asked the union to scrap its Privacy Shield agreement with the United States, saying that the US will not be able to protect that privacy.
The CDD notes the absence of privacy enforcement from the FCC and Federal Trade Commission, citing that there is “no effective legal framework” in the US that protects consumer data privacy.
In addition, the group mentioned the FCC’s Congressional Review Act Nullification on March 2017 on broadband privacy rules as one of the explanations why the US is unable to shield data privacy.
The agreement between the two countries have been made last year.
