The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission and Swiss Government, and with industry and other stakeholders, to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a valid legal mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union (EU) and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.

The CCPA gives California consumers the right to know what personal information is being collected about them, the right to request that their personal information be deleted, and the right to request that their personal information not be sold.

The law applies to for-profit businesses that collect personal information from California consumers and meet certain thresholds for annual revenue, number of consumers, or amount of personal information collected. The CCPA also requires businesses to provide certain disclosures to California consumers about their data collection practices.

The General Data Protection Regulation is a series of laws that were approved by the EU Parliament in 2016. They came into affect on May 25th 2018.

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an initiative by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new ways that data is now used.

The new regulations give users great control over their data, including the ability to export it, withdraw consent and request access to it.

It also makes data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU, allowing for the easier transfer of data through out the European Union.

It affects any company that does business with Europe, whether they are based in the EU or not.

It serves as a leading regulatory model for other data protection authorities throughout the world.
