EDPS sanctions Parliament over EU-US Data Transfers to Google and StripeEDPSEDPS sanctions the European Parliament for illegal EU-US data transfers – among other violations

The European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) issued a decision after a complaint filed by noyb confirming that the European Parliament violated data protection law on its COVID testing website. The EDPS highlights that the use of Google Analytics and the payment provider Stripe (both US companies) violated the Court of Justice’s (CJEU) “Schrems II” ruling on EU-US data transfers. The ruling is one of the first decisions implementing “Schrems II” on the ground and may show the way for hundreds of other cases pending before regulators.

The EDPS made it clear that even the placement of a cookie by a US provider is violating EU privacy laws. No proper protections against US surveillance were in place, despite the fact that European politicians are a known target for surveillance. We expect more such decisions on the use of US providers in the next months, as other cases are also due for a decision.” Max Schrems, Honorary Chairman of noyb.eu
