Is it true that the Court of Justice of the European Union recently invalidated the Privacy Shield mechanism to transfer personal data from the European Union to the US?
Yes, on July 16 the CJEU invalidated this mechanism. However, national regulatory authorities are still assessing the implications of the decisions. In the interim period until all clients have migrated to the Standard Contractual Clauses, Aircall will continue to comply with its obligations under Privacy Shield.
How does this ruling impact my relationship with Aircall?
Aircall has made available an updated Data Protection Agreement which can be downloaded on our website here. Changes in our Data Protection Agreement (“DPA”) are detailed below.
How will Aircall lawfully transfer current personal data from the European Union to the US?
Aircall will ask that its customers execute its updated DPA which relies on the Standard Contractual Clauses as a means of lawful data transfer. The Standard Contractual Clauses are incorporated in the updated DPA.
Does the recent CJEU decision affect the validity of the Standard Contractual Clauses?
No, the CJEU decision stated that the Standard Contractual Clauses remain a valid mechanism to transfer personal data from the European Union to the US.
