European Parliament hearing on PNRs

I’m off to Brussels for this hearing on Monday (agenda , additional background documents ) on the transfer of passenger name record (PNR) data from the European union to the USA, and for a meeting of the “Article 29 Working Party” of E.U. national data protection authorities on the same topics.

I hope to be able to raise some of the issues I’ve written about here , here , and here related to the lack of adequate protection (against access by the government, commercial misuse and redisclousure, and further transfers to other countries) for PNR data transferred to commercial entities in the USA, in routine and flagrant violation of the EU Data Protection Directive and the privacy, notice, and consent requirements of the EU Code of Conduct for CRS’s.

Here’s my prepared statement for the meetings.

Update: Report on the day’s events (in English) from the European Digital Rights Initiative (EDRi) and a German translation of the same report.

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
