For details of the new EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, see our comprehensive EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Q&A. The Q&A discusses key features about the Privacy Shield to assist you in determining if this is the proper mechanism to use when transferring data outside of the EU to the U.S., and provides information to help you comply with the Privacy Shield’s requirements.
