FTC settles with companies on false Privacy Shield claims

The Federal Trade Commission has reached settlements with four companies (Click Labs, Incentive Services, Global Data Vault, TDARX) that allegedly misrepresented their participation in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework. The FTC also alleged that two of the companies failed to comply with Privacy Shield requirements. With this announcement, the FTC has now brought a total of 21 enforcement actions related to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework since it was established in 2016.
