FTC Settles with companies falsely claiming to comply with Safe Harbor

In January 2014 the Federal Trade Agency informed that twelve U.S. businesses agreed to settle after they falsely claimed to be abiding by the international privacy framework known as the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor. The U.S.-EU Safe Harbor enables U.S. companies to transfer consumer data between the United States and the European Union, in compliance with privacy safeguards following the line of those set forth by the EU law.
