Contact your MEP:

Dear MEP,

The European Parliament will soon have to vote soon on the EU-US-PNR Agreement (transfer to the US and subsequent retention of European citizens’ data travelling to the US).

I urge you to reject this Agreement.

It does not respect European fundamental rights standards. The far-reaching provision on mass storage of private data of European citizens for 15 years is an unjustified interference with the fundamental right to privacy!

Furthermore, the Agreement does not meet the criteria set by the European Parliament in its Resolutions as of May [1] and November 2010. [2]

Even the rapporteur recommended withholding consent on the EU-USA-PNR Agreement. [3]

With kind regards

What to do?

Contact your elected representatives. This is the most useful thing you can do at this stage, and before the final vote in the European Parliament.

You can find a list with all Members of the European Parliament here.

And now: Just copy and paste.

Background:

The European Parliament will soon have to vote on an Agreement for the transfer to the US and subsequent retention of European citizens’ data (PNR) travelling to the US. However, the proposed Agreement to forward PNR data to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is still deeply flawed. In its Resolutions of 5 May 2010 and 11 November 2010, the European Parliament raised serious concerns about the upcoming negotiations and the global approach towards the transfer of passenger name record data to third countries. The current proposal has not addressed any of the demands and flaws identified by the European Parliament. The criteria set in the EP-resolutions have not been met. Read more.
