EU – US Data Sharing Row Hits Europe’s Highest Court


Privacy lawyer and activist Max Schrems wants the Privacy Shield data sharing agreement between the EU and the US struck down. Today Europe’s highest court will hear his argument.

The case has its roots in a complaint made by Schrems against Facebook in 2013. The complaint specifically seeks to stop EU-US data transfers by Facebook Ireland Ltd., and was triggered by the Edward Snowden revelations that Facebook allows the US intelligence services to access the personal data of Europeans under surveillance programs like “PRISM”.
