Ensemble Travel Group Inc., (ETG) Notice regarding European Court of Justice Schrems II Ruling on EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and EU Standard Contract Clauses (SCC) for ETG Customers, Users, Member Agencies, Website Visitors and Business Partners Dated 7/20/20
On July 16, 2020, the European Court of Justice determined that the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework is no longer valid for the transfer of EU/EEA Personal Data from the European Union and European Economic Area (EEA) to the U.S. (Schrems II decision). The Schrems II decision also placed additional compliance requirements on the use of EU Standard Contract Clauses (SCC) for transfer of EU/EEA Personal Data to the U.S. by companies subject to Section 702 of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and/or Executive Order 12333 (E.O. 12333).
At ETG, we know our customers, users, member agencies, website visitors, and business partners around the world care deeply about privacy and data security; and ETG optimizes its work to get these issues right for them. Today, we’d like to confirm for our customers, users/member agencies, website visitors and business partners that they can continue to use ETG products and services regarding EU and EEA Personal Data in compliance with EU law.
First, please know that it is our good faith belief that the types of EU/EEA Personal Data ETG receives, collects, processes, uses and/or shares in the U.S. are not of the types of data that would generally be subject to requests from U.S. government authorities pursuant to FISA Section 702 and/or E.O. 12333.
Second, please be aware that as part of ETG’s good faith efforts to comply with applicable data security laws that ETG uses data encryption in transit and at rest.
Fourth, if your business entity or organization is a party to an EU data processing/protection agreement with ETG that includes EU Standard Contract Clauses (SCC) for compliance with EU/EEA data protection laws, please contact us at email@example.com or through your ETG account registered in our online portal to discuss whether any updates to our agreement are needed resulting from the Schrems II decision.
At ETG, trust is a top priority, and we will continue to work vigilantly to ensure that ETG’s customers, users, member agencies, website visitors, and business partners are able to continue to enjoy the benefits of our products and services securely, compliantly, and without disruption.
As always if you have questions or concerns about ETG’s collection and/or use of personal information or data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through your ETG account registered in our online portal.
