eBay Responds to Safe Harbor Ruling

We take the privacy and safety of the hundreds of millions of people who use eBay very seriously. Since 2009, eBay has transferred data globally within the eBay group on the basis of “Binding Corporate Rules” (BCRs) which have been officially approved by EU Data Protection Authorities. This means we already treat the personal information of our customers everywhere within the eBay Inc. corporate family according to approved European Union privacy standards. We are analyzing these latest developments and we will continue to do so as the framework moves towards implementation. Privacy is a complex area and eBay broadly welcomes all efforts to strengthen privacy commitments and standards.  To read the European Commission press release on Safe Harbor, click (here).
