Ensuring Compliance With EU Data Protection Laws

Fleet Complete customers can continue using our products and services in compliance with EU law.

In July 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) delivered its decision in the Schrems II case that recognized the validity of Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs), but invalidated the transfer of personal data from the EU to the US under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. We appreciate that some of our customers may have questions about the impact of the decision and our actions in the wake of it.

Fleet Complete has long provided customers with two layers of protection for data transfers from the EU to the US by seeking out sub-processors certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework who meet our security standards and incorporating Standard Contractual Clauses into its data processing agreements where possible. While the recent CJEU judgement invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, it does not affect the SCCs, which remain a valid data export mechanism today.

We anticipate the EU supervisory authorities to issue additional guidance on how to comply with the new legal landscape in the coming months. In the meantime, we will continue to uphold our obligations and commitments to our customers under our contracts and the GDPR.

Fleet Complete remains committed to maintaining a high level of privacy and security for our customers and will continue to drive enhancements to our data protection safeguards. As always, we are here to provide you the best service and to answer any question you may have.
