Online activities quite often involve transfers of personal data between the European Union (EU) and the United States (US), for example when using online search, social networks and many mobile apps. Both regions are governed by different rules on the protection of informational privacy and personal data. Next to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, the passing of the Californian Consumer Privacy Act will add new complexity to the transnational protection of personal data. With such rapid developments happening we are excited to announce the opportunity to learn how these latest trends are shaping the legal landscape, on both sides of the Atlantic, in a one-week intensive summer course.
Register now and join us in the seventh Annual Summer Course on Privacy Law and Policy organized by the Institute for Information Law (IViR) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The course will take place from the 1st to the 5th of July in 2019, and will be hosted at the Tropeninstituut, a historic building on Mauritskade 63, close to the city center of Amsterdam.
The focus of the course is on privacy law and policy related to the internet, electronic communications, online and social media. It will explore the broader trends as well as the recent developments and explains how businesses, governments, and other stakeholders can achieve their goals within the changing legal framework. The interactive seminars will be led by distinguished European and US academics, regulators and practitioners investigating the EU and US legal frameworks and how these regimes operate together. The aim is not only to provide practical information about the latest development, but also looks at the bigger picture to gain an insight into where this area of law may be headed.
Hope to see you in Amsterdam this summer!
