The FTC agreed to  ”settle charges against 14 companies for falsely claiming to participate in the international privacy framework known as the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor. Three of the companies were also charged with similar violations related to the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor.”  The Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, and Tennessee Titans were among the 14:

  1. American Apparel
  2. Apperian, Inc.
  3. Atlanta Falcons Football Club, LLC
  4. Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP
  5. BitTorrent, Inc.
  6. Charles River Laboratories International, Inc.
  7. DataMotion, Inc.
  8. DDC Laboratories, Inc.
  9. Fantage, Inc.
  10. Level 3 Communications, LLC
  11. PDB Sports, Ltd., d/b/a Denver Broncos Football Club
  12. Reynolds Consumer Products Inc.
  13. Receivable Management Services Corporation
  14. Tennessee Football, Inc. (Tennessee Titans)

The big question is, why would pro football teams misrepresent Safe-Harbor participation with the EU?
