On December 6th 2021, the Wiesbaden Administrative Court issued a press release on a preliminary ruling centered around the use of a US-based CDN service.
We are actively investigating the issues raised in the preliminary ruling and working closely with legal advisers. Our priority is to build a sound understanding of this case and next steps, and our ultimate aim is to ensure that our customers can continue to use our solution with complete confidence.
We are concerned that the ruling is based on an inaccurate presentation of the facts. As we were not a formal party in the proceedings, we intervened and have meanwhile been granted party status. We are now able to provide further information and offer the court a more detailed and complete picture of our CMP solution and of the digital privacy landscape.
At the center of this case is the wider political issue between the EU and US on data transfers as manifested in the Schrems II ruling. Our mission is to protect privacy. Engaging in this ruling will allow us to share expert knowledge and experience with the court, which will ultimately help shape the future of the data privacy industry.
