FTC Settles with Companies Falsely Purporting to Comply with Safe Harbor


Last week, twelve companies, representing several industries, ranging from retail to professional sports, were charged with falsely representing that they held current European Safe Harbor certifications when they had actually allowed these certifications to lapse. Several of the companies handled sensitive consumer data. The Federal Trade Commission held that such misconduct violated Section 5 of the FTC Act. This case signals to companies that they cannot claim participation in any program without consequences and also ensures the integrity of Safe Harbors.
