Safe Harbor agreement ruled invalid by top EU court

Safe Harbor agreement ruled invalid by top EU court

The European Union’s highest court has today ruled against the transatlantic Safe Harbor agreement which had allowed companies to transfer European citizens’ personal data to the US. The decision, made by the European Court of Justice (ECJ), will affect thousands of companies which had been transfering a wide range of information under an agreement that allowed them to circumvent Europe’s much stricter privacy rules.
