What are the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield & Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield?

The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield 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.

On July 12, 2016, the European Commission deemed the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework adequate to enable data transfers under EU law (see the EU Adequacy Decision). The Privacy Shield program is administered by the International Trade Administration (ITA) within the U.S. Department of Commerce and applies to the transfer of personal information from the EU and Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway, and the United Kingdom to the United States.

On January 12, 2017, the Swiss Government announced the approval of the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as a valid legal mechanism to comply with Swiss requirements when transferring personal data from Switzerland to the United States. See the statements from the Swiss Federal Council and Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner.
