Contributors from all over the world are always welcome to participate (see below). The EU Court of Justice has delivered its powerful Judgment in Case C-311/18 “Schrems II” (Validity of EU Standard Data Protection Clauses) on 16 July 2020, see here.

The European Essential Guarantees Guide (“EEGG“) is a global project focusing on Governmental Surveillance and Data Retention laws for assessing the lawfulness of international data transfers under the GDPR, among others. The EEGG is constantly growing and seeks contributions from all over the world!

The EEGG is intended to turn the spotlight on governmental measures, especially on

  • Surveillance measures,
  • Situations where data relating to the private life of an individual is stored by public authorities, and
  • Data retention by providers of electronic or telecommunication services (i.e., storage of call detail records (CDRs) of telephony or internet traffic and transaction data (IPDRs)).

If you are familiar with these areas and would like to contribute for a country listed below, please send an email to:
