Some of Europe’s largest companies have called for guidance on how they should transfer data to the US, after facing legal challenges from activists.

Meal delivery group Just Eat Takeaway, Danske Bank and the University of Luxembourg all said they wanted clarification from regulators after Noyb, a non-profit privacy campaign group, filed official complaints against them and 98 other organisations for failing to protect the data of their users.

Noyb’s founder, Max Schrems, won a ruling at the European Court of Justice in July which invalidated Privacy Shield, the transatlantic agreement used by around 5,000 companies to transfer data from the EU to the US.
