What is the EU-US Privacy Shield?

In 2015, the European Union and United States set out to design a framework in which both parties comply with the same data protection policies. Under this new policy, which replaces the International Safe Harbor Privacy Principles, US-based companies agree to comply with EU laws pertaining to data management and collection when working with EU-based clients and businesses. These laws ensure the protection of private data and free and timely resolution for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance.
