The US Department of Homeland Security and the US Department of Justice are still discussing the contents of the agreement and what each would like to see included, Ms Foley said, without going into the details of the agreement. However,

Ms Foley did say that sensitive personal data in the agreement on the exchange of criminal files, such as sexual preference or whether a suspect belonged to a trade union, would not be required. Ms Foley added that when the content of the final agreement is worked out it will relate only to the exchange of information between the respective countries’ law enforcement agencies if a suspect is thought or known to have committed a serious crime.
