Facebook to stop transferring personal data to the USA

Facebook has received a preliminary order from the Irish Data Protection Commissioner (DPA)  to suspend transfers of personal data of EU citizens to the USA, the Wall Street Journal reported. This is the first enforcement effort of the Schrems II decision of the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) from 16 July 2020. In a statement, Facebook has called for clear, global rules for data transfers underpinned by the rule of law; and stated that it will continue to transfer data in compliance with the recent CJEU ruling and until they receive further guidance.
