Abstract

International data transfers involve a flow of personal data from Spanish territory to recipients established in countries outside the European Economic Area. It is the European Commission that decides, with effects for the whole Union, that a third country, a territory or a specific sector of a third country, or an international organisation offers an adequate level of data protection, thus providing legal certainty and uniformity throughout the Union with regard to the third country or international organisation.
