The Data Protection Authorities of Hessen and Bavaria announced on their websites that they have released broad information on the EU-US Privacy Shield, including a unified complaint form for data subjects. The Privacy Shield came into force on 1 August 2016 as a new legal basis for transfers of personal data from the EU to the US. Under its regime, data subjects from the EU enjoy specific rights against Privacy Shield-certified US companies such as rights to information, rectification, erasure, or guarantees in the case of onward transfers. For the first time, European citizens have been given the opportunity to request an examination from a US ombudsman if they fear breaches of their personal rights by US secret services and authorities have occurred. The information and complaint form published shall facilitate the use of these rights.
