Pursuant to the Article 29 Working Party’s guidelines on pre-trial discovery for cross border civil litigation issued in February 2009, the French Data Protection Authority (CNIL)adopted similar guidelines for companies based in France that transfer personal

data to the U.S. in the context of civil proceedings. These guidelines are generally in line with those of WP 29, although the CNIL does address pretrial discovery in light of French rules of

civil procedure. French civil procedure requirements apply regardless of data protection requirements.
