Using Schrems II, German DPA Costs Mailchimp a Customer

The Bavarian Data Protection Authority (DPA) declared that a German company’s transfer of email addresses to U.S.-based email service Mailchimp was unlawful in light of the 2020 Schrems II decision issued by the Court of Justice of the European Union. The DPA did not issue a fine or a formal decision because the German company discontinued use of Mailchimp when the DPA raised the issue, but this development highlights the continuing risk surrounding EU-U.S. data transfers in the wake of Schrems II.
