European Court of Justice declares "Privacy Shield" regulation for unlawful

The European Court of Justice follows the argumentation of a lawsuit made by the Austrian lawyer and activist Max Schrems and declares the "Privacy Shield" unlawful. The pact has until now regulated how companies can share data of European citizens with companies in the United States.

Other regulations based on so-called standard contractual clauses are not affected by the decision. Still, data transfer needs to be suspended if it seems given that the contractual agreements can't or won't be fulfilled in the data receiving country.
