Amanda Brock, CEO at OpenUK, said: “The question really is how to bridge the gap between the UK and European privacy requirements and the fact that the US does not meet the ‘adequate protections test’, despite a huge number of European companies in our platform economy processing personal data there.
“If business goes down the route of a further sticking plaster, then it runs the risk of Schrems 3. It really is time for us to look long and hard at the issues cause by the US approach to privacy.”
