Model Con­tracts for the trans­fer of per­so­nal data to third coun­tries – Euro­pean Com­mis­si­on

The Coun­cil and the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment have given the Com­mis­si­on the power to deci­de, on the basis of Arti­cle 26 (4) of direc­ti­ve 95/46/EC that cer­tain stan­dard con­trac­tu­al clau­ses offer suf­fi­ci­ent safe­guards as requi­red by Arti­cle 26 (2), that is, they pro­vi­de ade­qua­te safe­guards with respect to the pro­tec­tion of the pri­va­cy and fun­da­men­tal rights and free­doms of indi­vi­du­als and as regards the exer­cise of the cor­re­spon­ding rights.The Com­mis­si­on has so far issued two sets of stan­dard con­trac­tu­al clau­ses for trans­fers from data con­trol­lers to data con­trol­lers estab­lished out­side the EU/EEA and one set for the trans­fer to pro­ces­sors estab­lished out­side the EU/EEA.
