As part of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement personal data can continue to flow freely between the EEA and UK for an initial period of four months from 1 January 2021. It is likely that after that period (or a short extension), the European Commission will adopt a finding of data protection adequacy in relation to the UK. This means there will not be any restrictions on the transfer of personal data from the EEA to the UK, or vice versa.
We share personal data across our branch offices and we envisage this will continue. We have branches in the UK, the EU, the Americas and Asia. We have a suite of data sharing agreements between all our branches which governs the transfer of data overseas and an information handling policy to which all our staff and contractors must adhere.
In the meantime, if you have any queries or concerns regarding the measures we have in place, please contact email@example.com.
