New Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework
The judgment in the Schrems II case issued by the European Court of Justice in 2020 found that Privacy Shield framework no longer provides adequate safeguards for the transfer of personal data to the United States from the EEA.
The United States (“U.S.”) and the European Commission (“EU Commission”) announced in 2022 an “agreement in principle” to develop a new Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (“Framework”). The Framework is intended to re-establish a legal mechanism for transfers of EU personal data to the U.S. after the Court of Justice of the European Union (“CJEU”) invalidated the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.
In the interim, to ensure that transfers of personal data from the EU to the US can occur in line with European data protection laws, Morae will enter into the Standard Contractual Clauses with our vendors who process personal data, and with our customers upon request. These Standard Contractual Clauses legitimize the transfer of personal data from the EU to the US.
Morae may change this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will also revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Policy. For material changes to this Policy, we will attempt to obtain your consent before implementing the change by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your account or by placing a prominent notice on the Website. Your continued use of the Website after Morae makes changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes.
