STOP PRESS: On 11 November 2020 the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) published recommendations on measures that supplement transfer tools to ensure compliance with the protection of personal data and recommendations on European Essential Guarantees for surveillance measures. Those recommendations were produced to provide further guidance following the Court of Justice's ruling in Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Limited, Maximillian Schrems (widely know as Schrems II), Case C-311/18. This Practice Note will be updated shortly to reflect the new guidance in those recommendations. For further information, see LNB News 11/11/2020 75.

Brexit: On 31 January 2020, the UK ceased to be an EU Member State and entered an implementation period, during which it continues to be subject to EU law. During this period, the GDPR applies in the UK and the UK generally continues to be treated as an EU (and EEA) state for EEA and UK data protection law purposes. Any references to EEA or EU states in this Practice Note should therefore be read to also include the UK until the end of the implementation period. For further guidance on that period, its duration and the data protection laws that are anticipated to apply after the end of it, see Practice Note: Brexit—implications for data protection.

The General Data Protection Regulation, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR), like its predecessor Directive 95/46/EC (the Data Protection Directive),
