FPF Statement on Today’s Safe Harbor Complaint

Today, the Center for Digital Democracy filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, alleging that companies are violating the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor agreement. CDD’s filing came with a report criticizing the practices of thirty companies.

“We are carefully reviewing the report’s claims, but the dozen we have examined so far seem to reflect the authors distaste for marketing, rather than legal safe harbor violations,” said Jules Polonetsky, Executive Director, Future of Privacy Forum.

The Future of Privacy Forum has long focused on the value of the Safe Harbor agreement, and issued a comprehensive report on the framework last fall.
