More than twenty civil society groups has urged European leaders to oppose adoption of the "Privacy Shield" for EU-US data flows. The NGOs state that the political agreement fails to provide sufficient data protection and does not respect the decision of the European Court of Justice in the Schrems case. The groups said the US must make changes in domestic laws and international commitments to comply with the decision and permit transfers of personal data. EPIC has launched "Data Protection 2016" to support stronger privacy safeguards in the US.
