Israeli Privacy Protection Authority declares Privacy Shield inadequate

The Isreali Privacy Protection Authority issued a position paper on implications of the Schrems II decision on transfers of personal data from Israel to the USA. 

While Israel is not party to the Privacy Shield arrangement, the Israeli law allows for the transfer of personal data from Israel to target jurisdictions that receive personal data from EU member states under the same terms of those EU member states. The Israeli Privacy Protection Authority now declared that the Privacy Shield is not an adequate mechanism for transfer of personal data from Israel to the USA and that other mechanisms under the Israeli law shall be used.
