Definition[edit | edit source]

Transborder data flow (also called cross-border data flow) is

the flow of electronic data across political boundaries, such as between states or countries, a process which can cause legal conflicts, such as who owns a particular piece of information, and who may use it.
"the movement or transfer of information between computer servers across national borders. Such data flows enable people to transmit information for online communication, track global supply chains, share research, provide cross-border services, and support technological innovation."[1]
