LIBE: Pri­va­cy Shield sei nicht ange­mes­sen – Ent­schei­dung beim Parlament

Das LIBE, der Aus­schluss des Euro­päi­schen Par­la­ments für bür­ger­li­che Frei­hei­ten, Justiz und Inne­res (Com­mit­tee on Civil Liber­ties, Justi­ce and Home Affairs), hat sich letz­ten Don­ners­tag mit 29 gegen 25 Stim­men (bei einer Ent­hal­tung) dafür aus­ge­spro­chen, dem Pri­va­cy Shield, der Nach­fol­ger des Safe-Har­bor-Abkom­men, die Ange­mess­ne­heit abzu­spre­chen (Medi­en­mit­tei­lung). Das Euro­päi­sche Par­la­ment wird dazu vor­aus­sicht­lich im April entscheiden.

Der LIBE hat dabei fol­gen­de Beden­ken festgehalten:

Among the remai­ning con­cerns that MEPs list are:

  • the lack of spe­ci­fic rules on auto­ma­ted decis­i­on-making or the gene­ral right to object, and the lack of clear prin­ci­ples on how the Pri­va­cy Shield Prin­ci­ples app­ly to data processors,
  • that “bulk sur­veil­lan­ce” remain pos­si­ble as regards natio­nal secu­ri­ty and surveillance,
  • that neither the Pri­va­cy Shield Prin­ci­ples nor let­ters from the US admi­ni­stra­ti­on demon­stra­te the exi­stence of effec­ti­ve judi­cial redress rights for indi­vi­du­als in the EU who­se per­so­nal data are trans­fer­red to the US, and
  • the Ombuds­per­son mecha­nism set up by the US Depart­ment of Sta­te is not suf­fi­ci­ent­ly inde­pen­dent and is not vested with suf­fi­ci­ent effec­ti­ve powers to car­ry out its duties.

MEPs also express alarm at recent reve­la­ti­ons about sur­veil­lan­ce acti­vi­ties con­duc­ted by a US elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons ser­vice pro­vi­der at the request of the NSA and FBI as late as 2015, one year after the Pre­si­den­ti­al Poli­cy Direc­ti­ve 28 was adopted, and insist that the Com­mis­si­on seeks full cla­ri­fi­ca­ti­on from the US authorities.
