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. The EU’s stance on data protection law made the headlines when its highest court ruled that individuals have a right to be forgotten vis-à-vis search engines and when it annulled the EU-US Safe Harbour scheme which backed the exchange of personal data between the two regions. The EU has strengthened its data protection legislation further with the adoption of a new regulation that aims to modernize individuals’ rights for the digital age. 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.
