Aware digital communication respecting privacy and the apps or services you choose

The Court of Justice invalidates adequacy Decision 2016/1250 - Data Protection Shield
Today we read the press release about the decision of the Court of Justice on the Case C-311/18 by which it has been invalided the Decision 2016/1250 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Data Protection Shield.
