Mayer Brown Legal Update
Wenn deutsche Unternehmen personenbezogene Daten an Unternehmen außerhalb der EU übermitteln, so müssen sie die strengen Anforderungen des Bundesdatenschutzgesetzes erfüllen. Für einen zulässigen Datentransfer müssen sie daher regelmäßig Maßnahmen treffen, um ein angemessenes Datenschutzniveau beim Empfänger sicherzustellen. When German companies transfer personal data to companies outside the EU then they have to fulfill the stringent requirements of the Federal Data Protection Act. Therefore, in order to ensure a permissible data transfer they must regularly take measures in order to ensure a suitable data protection level by the recipient.
