EU court invalidates Privacy Shield pact with the US
The European Union’s top court ruled that an agreement that allows thousands of companies — from tech giants to small financial firms — to transfer data to the United States is invalid because the American government can snoop on people’s data, according to an AP News report. The ruling could impact how companies transfer European users’ data to the United States and other countries, such as the U.K,  and could require regulators to vet any new data transfers to make sure Europeans’ personal information remains protected according to the EU’s stringent standards, says AP News.
