EU Justice Commissioner must act now to protect privacy

EU-US Privacy Shield

The European Parliament has adopted a resolution strongly criticising the EU-US "Privacy Shield". The Privacy Shield regulates the transfer of personal data from the EU to the US, such as when using online services like search engines or social networks. Jan Philipp Albrecht, Vice-Chair of the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs committee, is now calling on the Commission to do more to protect personal data in the EU.

Disproportionate, ineffective and expensive

EU entry/exit system

The Greens/EFA group have voted against new measures to create an entry/exit system for people from third countries travelling to and from the EU. Under the measures, authorities will be able to gather and store personal data on non-EU citizens, including tourists and business people. These costly and largely ineffective measures are set to undermine fundamental liberties in the interests of looking tough on crime and terrorism.
