Welcome to the August/September 2014 edition of our Data Protection update, our monthly bulletin on key developments in data protection law.
In this issue, we discuss the recent English High Court decision to grant leave to serve proceedings under the UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) outside of the jurisdiction against Google Inc. We also look at what appears to be the first case where a global technology company has challenged the validity of a US search warrant over personal data stored outside of the US in Ireland.
We continue to keep you up to date with the recent activity of the ICO including the latest prosecutions and monetary penalty notices. We also provide a highlight of the ICO's report on big data and the ICO's annual report 2013/14.
