Max Schrems has won his case, leading to EU-US Privacy Shield being declared as invalid by the Court of Justice of the EU. However, standard contractual clauses remain acceptable, as long as the companies involved can prove they have undertaken a review of the adequacy of data privacy in any third-party country. The US privacy regime does not meet the criteria for respecting fundamental rights under the “EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.”
