The Department of Commerce will develop informational material regarding the Privacy Shield that interested DPAs may include on their own websites or distribute to individuals to increase transparency and understanding of the Privacy Shield among European stakeholders.

The Privacy Shield team recognizes that EU individuals and businesses will often turn to DPAs first to seek information regarding the Privacy Shield and the rights and responsibilities it creates. Increased transparency regarding the Privacy Shield will help facilitate the identification of issues as they arise, so that these can be appropriately addressed. 

The Department of Commerce invites DPAs to reach out to the Department of Commerce’s DPA liaison (by clicking here and submitting an inquiry via the "Dispute Resolution and Enforcement" tab) with any suggestions regarding this material to better assist DPAs and European stakeholders.
