Meet the standards established by teh Eureopean Union and U.S. Federal government for exchanging personal data between the continents
The General Data Protection regulation (GDPR) is a set of laws enacted in the European Union (EU) in 2018. It has specific requirements referencing the transfer of data out of the EU, one of which is that the transfer must happen only to those countries considered as having adequate data protection laws. In general, the EU does not list the US as one of those countries. At this point, Privacy Shield allows US companies, or EU companies working with US companies, to meet this specific requirement of the GDPR.
