Data Protection: USA

Question for Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

UIN HL4150, tabled on 13 December 2017

To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they intend to take to replace the EU–US Privacy Shield insofar as it relates to the UK, following Brexit.

Answered on

The EU-US Privacy Shield contains protections only available to those within the EU. We will therefore discuss with the US how best to ensure that the current protections afforded to UK citizens can be maintained post exit. We want a smooth and orderly transition to our new arrangements.
