EU privacy watchdogs keep open mind on new U.S. data pact

By Julia Fioretti BRUSSELS (Reuters) – European Union privacy watchdogs will let a new EU-U.S. commercial data pact underpinning billions of dollars of transatlantic trade run for at least a year without any legal challenge, they said on Tuesday. The new EU-U.S. Privacy Shield will allow companies to transfer personal data from the EU to the United States – from human resources information to individual browsing histories to hotel bookings. The chair of the group of 28 EU data protection authorities said on Tuesday that the regulators would not launch any challenges to the new Privacy Shield until it has gone through its first annual review, expected sometime next summer.
