U.S. Not Looking to Alter Data Transfer Pact with Europe

The United States does not want to change the substance of a data transfer pact agreed in February with the European Commission, a senior official said, after EU privacy watchdogs voiced concerns over elements of the deal. Stefan Selig, U.S. Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade, said the United States would evaluate the EU regulators' opinion very carefully, but would be wary of reopening the agreement.
