Stephen Tupper, Bloomfield Hills-based member and leader of Dykema’s Privacy, Data Security, and E-Commerce practice, and Aaron Charfoos, Chicago-based member of Dykema’s Intellectual Property Practice Group, were quoted in the Point B + Beyond  article, “Privacy Shield Update: Companies Are Flocking to New EU-US Data Transfer Agreement.”

The article discusses Privacy Shield, an international agreement which supersedes the Safe Harbor pact. Both agreements govern the handling of sensitive consumer data in electronic commercial transactions. Tupper and Charfoos compare U.S. and European laws in the matter of consumer privacy, noting that European laws are much more stringent.
