1 minute reading time

Schrems II is an EU Court of Justice (CJEU) case ruling on the mechanisms that allow personal data flows from the EU to the US. The CJEU struck down the Privacy Shield, a widely-used framework for personal data transfer to the US, and ruled that Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) can be used, so long as the data controller, data recipient, and data protection authority in the EU member country deem the transfer to be able to ensure an adequate level of data protection.
