Adequacy of the protection afforded by the EU-US privacy Shield: extracts from the debate (recorded on 05/04/2017)
Event date: 05/04/2017
During the EP plenary session (3-6 April 2017) in Strasbourg, MEPs debate a draft resolution so that the EU Commission ensure that the EU-US “Privacy Shield” for data transfers offers sufficient personal data protection. They are alarmed by recent revelations about surveillance activities and new rules allowing the US National Security Agency to share vast amounts of private data. Statements by Vera JOUROVA, Member of the EC in charge of Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, Axel VOSS (EPP, DE), Claude MORAES (S&D, UK), Sophia IN'T VELD (ALDE, NL) and Judith SARGENTINI (Greens/EFA, NL), recorded on 05/04/2017.
