> Europeans’ data will benefit from high privacy standards when their data is transferred to Japan," the Czech commissioner said.

say what???????

Our companies will also benefit from a privileged access to a 127 million consumers' market."

yeah. Keep telling yourself that..

The two sides agreed to a mechanism to investigate and resolve complaints from Europeans over data access that Japan's independent data protection authority will run and supervise.

Japan's independent data protection authority????? No agency nor authority in Japan is independent. That's just insane.

Access by public authorities for these reasons would be "subject to independent oversight and effective redress mechanisms," the EU executive said.

"subject to independent oversight and effective redress mechanisms??? In Japan????

Europeans’ data will benefit from high privacy standards when their data is transferred to Japan," the Czech commissioner said. "Our companies will also benefit from a privileged access to a 127 million consumers' market.

Utter, screaming, insane, delusional madness. Any data transferred to Japan will be leaked, bought and sold within minutes. Seriously, what in God's name are these people thinking of?
