Privacy Shield Overview

What is Privacy Shield?

The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission and Swiss Administration to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.

Privacy Shield is a program companies implement in order to give users rights to the data about themselves that is stored or processed by the company that implements the program.
