Employee Privacy Notice for the European Economic Area and Switzerland
On October 6, 2015, the Court of Justice of the European Union determined the EU-US Safe Harbor framework did not provide an adequate legal basis for transfers of personal data from the European Economic Area (EEA) to the United States. Shortly thereafter, the Swiss data commissioner issued an opinion that data transfers from Switzerland to the United States based solely on the Safe Harbor framework also were not adequate.
Esterline will continue to protect all personal data received from the EEA and Switzerland in accordance with the Safe Harbor Principles. In addition, we have utilized European Commission-approved standard contractual clauses (also known as Model Clauses or Model Contracts) to legitimize the transfer of personal data from the EEA and Switzerland to the United States.
