EU Dissatisfied With US Clarification On Yahoo Secret Email ScanEU Dissatisfied With US Clarification On Yahoo Secret Email Scan
Justice Chief Vera Jourova expects detailed explanations and transparency from the EU's Privacy Shield partner.
January 12, 2017
European Union (EU) Justice Commissioner Vera Jourova has said the EU is not satisfied with the United States' recent clarification of the Yahoo email scanning directive and expects more details, reports Reuters. The two nations are bound by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield formed to secure the $260 billion digital services trade between them.
Although the Yahoo scan case happened before the formation of the Privacy Shield, the EU has voiced concerns about US commitments on spying, despite its pledge against indiscriminate surveillance.
"I am not satisfied because to my taste the answer came relatively late and relatively general, and I will make clear at the first possible opportunity to the American side that this is not how we understand good, quick and full exchange of information," said Jourova.
The Privacy Shield is due for its annual review this summer by the new US government and Jourova expects "that Trump's administration would understand what is good and what is bad for business."
An October Reuters report had said a court order directed Yahoo to secretly scan incoming emails in a terrorism case.
