Pro Football Teams Among 14 Who Settle EU Safe Harbor Misrepresentations


The FTC agreed to “settle charges against 14 companies for falsely claiming to participate in the international privacy framework known as the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor. Three of the companies were also charged with similar violations related to the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor.” The Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, and Tennessee Titans were among the 14:

  1. American Apparel
  2. Apperian, Inc.
  3. Atlanta Falcons Football Club, LLC
  4. Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP
  5. BitTorrent, Inc.
  6. Charles River Laboratories International, Inc.
  7. DataMotion, Inc.
  8. DDC Laboratories, Inc.
  9. Fantage, Inc.
  10. Level 3 Communications, LLC
  11. PDB Sports, Ltd., d/b/a Denver Broncos Football Club
  12. Reynolds Consumer Products Inc.
  13. Receivable Management Services Corporation
  14. Tennessee Football, Inc. (Tennessee Titans)

The big question is, why would pro football teams misrepresent Safe-Harbor participation with the EU?

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
