Until 2015, the Safe Harbour Privacy Principles were the legal basis for personal data pertaining to European citizens handled by US companies. They ensured such data would not fall under the disclosing agreements that bind US companies. Deemed invalid by the European Court of Justice (CJEU), those principles were replaced by the Privacy Shield which was also recently invalidated by the CJEU.

As privacy plays a bigger rule in the global landscape, customers want to be assured their data always stay in safe hands.
