(101) 為了國際貿易與國際合作，進出非歐盟國及國際組織之個人資 料流通是有必要的。該等流通之增加已然帶來了新挑戰與有關個人資 料保護之問題。然而，當個人資料從歐盟移轉至第三國境內之控管者、 處理者或其他接收者或國際組織時，在歐盟內依本規則對當事人保護 之程度不得降低，此包括在從第三國或國際組織再移轉個人資料予在 相同或其他第三國之控管者、處理者或再移轉至國際組織之情形。在 任何情況下，向第三國和國際組織之移轉僅得於完全遵循本規則之前 提下執行。唯有當控管者或處理者已遵守本規則所定關於個人資料移 轉至第三國或國際組織之規範，且受本規則所定其他條款之拘束者， 個人資料之移轉始得為之。
(101) Flows of personal data to and from countries outside the Union and international organisations are necessary for the expansion of international trade and international cooperation. The increase in such flows has raised new challenges and concerns with regard to the protection of personal data. However, when personal data are transferred from the Union to controllers, processors or other recipients in third countries or to international organisations, the level of protection of natural persons ensured in the Union by this Regulation should not be undermined, including in cases of onward transfers of personal data from the third country or international organisation to controllers, processors in the same or another third country or international organisation. In any event, transfers to third countries and international organisations may only be carried out in full compliance with this Regulation. A transfer could take place only if, subject to the other provisions of this Regulation, the conditions laid down in the provisions of this Regulation relating to the transfer of personal data to third countries or international organisations are complied with by the controller or processor.
(102) This Regulation is without prejudice to international agreements concluded between the Union and third countries regulating the transfer of personal data including appropriate safeguards for the data subjects. Member States may conclude international agreements which involve the transfer of personal data to third countries or international organisations, as far as such agreements do not affect this Regulation or any other provisions of Union law and include an appropriate level of protection for the fundamental rights of the data subjects.
