Transfer of data to third countries
The adoption of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (DS-GVO) created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe.

This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the official recognition by the EU Commission of a data protection level corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognised special contractual obligations, the so-called “standard contractual clauses”. For US companies, submission to the so-called “Privacy Shield”, the data protection agreement between the EU and the USA, fulfils these requirements.
