Congress passing a resolution rolling back privacy rules for broadband providers and the upcoming annual review of a transatlantic data transfer framework top the latest news stories and developments to watch, Bloomberg BNA Senior Legal Editor Jimmy H. Koo says in the latest Privacy & Security Wrap .
Also, global sandwich chain Subway recently agreed to pay approximately $31 million to settle class allegations that it printed receipts revealing too much information about customers’ payment cards.
The House March 28 cleared a resolution that would rescind Federal Communications Commission’s rules requiring broadband providers, including Comcast Corp. and AT&T Inc., to get affirming consent form subscribers before collecting or selling their personal information.
Other important developments include a European Parliament committee adopting a draft resolution raising concerns that the European Union-U.S. Privacy Shield transatlantic data transfer framework has privacy issues that must be addressed during the agreement’s first annual review this summer.
The Privacy Shield agreement, clinched last year, was meant to keep data flowing across the Atlantic while ensuring that Europeans enjoyed safeguards from snooping by U.S. agencies. EU Justice Commissioner Vera Jourova recently said that she still has concerns about U.S. government surveillance and the day-to-day enforcement of the protections under the Privacy Shield program.
Upcoming developments that Bloomberg BNA is tracking include an April 24 meeting of the International Working Group of Data Protection in Telecommunications to address the Privacy Shield and South Africa’s new privacy law that will kick in May 24.
Starting on April 19, Bloomberg Law will be at the International Association of Privacy Professionals Global Privacy Summit in Washington. Bloomberg BNA Privacy and Security News Managing Editor Donald Aplin will moderate an April 19 panel at the summit, on international data localization laws.
