Privacy Shield integrates ADR mechanisms

The newly approved EU-US Privacy Shield establishes various alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, in addition to the possibility of raising complaints directly with the company. Individuals can bring cases of non-compliance with the Privacy Shield principles to independent dispute resolution bodies in the USA or the EU, which are to be provided free of charge. Individuals can also submit complaints to data protection authorities, and as a last resort, they have the right to invoke binding arbitration under the Privacy Shield Panel.
