The transfer of personal data from a company in Sweden to the United States may be illegal, due to a recent European Court of Justice’s judgment. Until now, such transfer of personal data has been mainly supported by the “Safe Harbor Privacy Principles”, but the European Court of Justice has now declared that these principles are not valid anymore. The judgment’s implications are currently being analyzed by experts and authorities. Thus, employers may need to implement new procedures to protect the personal data adequately. It is recommendable that concerned employers review their current transfer of personal data and the related routines.
