16 July: the most important date of the year (for privacy people, that is…)

15 May 2020

On Thursday, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) published a long-awaited tweet: Case C-311/18 #Facebook Ireland & #Schrems – Judgment to be delivered on 16th July 2020. This means that the Court in Luxembourg on 16 July will deliver its verdict in one of the most anticipated cases on privacy and data protection for years. The key question if the international flows of personal data can continue as we have come to do in recent years, or if major changes to the system are required. And that in turn may have an impact on many companies around the world.
