EU-US Privacy Shield and GDPR Framework

“On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union issued a judgment declaring as “invalid” the European Commission’s Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. As a result of that decision, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is no longer a valid mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States. This decision does not relieve participants in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield of their obligations under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.” 

Fraud.Net has been compliant with the EU-US Privacy Shield and follows its  recommended best practices. However, given the invalidation by The Court of Justice of the European Union (“CJEU”) as mentioned above, and its subsequent ruling that international data flows under the European Union’s comprehensive data protection regime, the GDPR, can continue to be EU standard Contractual Clauses, there is no impact on’s privacy notification and practices due to EU-US Privacy Shield Framework invalidation as it already complies with GDPR expectations by keeping EU data segregated in the EU jurisdiction by design. Furthermore, GDPR itself recognizes the importance of fraud prevention within two of its recitals, and falls into an exception category. 

Recital 47: “The processing of personal data strictly necessary for the purposes of preventing fraud also constitutes a legitimate interest of the data controller concerned…”

Recital 71: “decision-making based on … profiling should be allowed where expressly authorized by … law … including for fraud or tax evasion monitoring and prevention purposes” is committed and continues to follow the best practices as outlined in GDPR Principles for all personal data received from the European Union. We may disclose information to comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request, including in response by lawful requests to meet national security or law enforcement requirements in accordance with the GDPR and other regulations, and you have a right to complain, correct or update the same as mentioned in the previous sections (Your Rights, Limiting Use and Disclosure as a Data Subject, Your Right to Complain, Accessing and Correcting Your Information ) of this Privacy Policy.
