InVision’s updated DPA includes the latest Standard Contractual Clauses issued by the European Commission on 4th June 2021.
Summary of the Schrems ii case
The CJEU’s judgment in Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Limited, Maximilian Schrems Case on the 16th of July 2020 ruled that:
- The Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) remain valid; and
- The Privacy Shield does not constitute an acceptable legal mechanism to legitimize transfer of personal data to the US.
Updated Standard Contractual Clauses (the ‘2021 SCCs’)
On the 4th June 2021 the European Commission released new Standard Contractual Clauses (‘2021 SCCs’). The 2021 SCCs take into account the Schrems ii decision and confirm that international data transfers under the GDPR can continue to be based on the 2021 SCCs where appropriate technical and organizational safeguards have been implemented to legitimize the data transfer outside of the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
What does this mean for InVision’s users?
InVision has updated its Data Processing Addendum (InVision DPA) to incorporate the 2021 SCCs. This means that InVision customers can continue to rely on the SCCs included in the InVision DPA as a valid transfer mechanism under GDPR.
The InVision DPA with the 2021 SCCs is available for all InVision customers transferring data outside of the EEA, including to the US. InVision customers can therefore continue to use InVision’s services in compliance with the GDPR.
