Data protection compliance for European users
I have already discussed this issue in General Discussions but just wanted to formally place it in the Wishlist.
This is the gist of current EU legislation on transfer of data outside the EU :
"Transfers may be made to any country or territory in respect of which the Commission has made a ‘positive finding of adequacy’. . . .The Commission has so far recognized Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Canada (commercial organisations), Switzerland, Faeroe Islands, Guernsey, Israel, Isle of Man, Jersey, New Zealand, Uruguay and the US Department of Commerce's Safe Harbour Privacy Principles as providing adequate protection . . .
If the transfer is to the United States of America, has the US recipient of the data signed up to the US Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Scheme?"
See this link for full text : http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/document/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.htm#h2-1 ) I know this cannot be achieved quickly but hope that WA can put it on the Roadmap as it's a worry for all European WA users.
