Passenger Name Record (EU-US Agreement)

The Court annuls the Council Decision concerning the conclusion of an agreement between the European Community and the United States of America on the processing and transfer of personal data and the Commission Decision on the adequate protection of those data.

Neither the Commission decision finding that the data are adequately protected by the United States nor the Council decision approving the conclusion of an agreement on their transfer to that country are founded on an appropriate legal basis.
