Safe Harbor
The Safe Harbor Agreement was replaced by the Privacy Shield accord on July 12, 2016.

“Safe harbor” is a provision of a statute or a regulation that reduces or eliminates a party’s liability under the law, on the condition that the party performed its actions in good faith. Safe-harbor provisions are written into laws to protect legitimate or excusable violations. Corporations publish safe-harbor statements to demonstrate that they are performing whatever due diligence is required in order to take advantage of applicable legal safe harbors. Safe harbor provides a framework for U.S. companies with E.U. subsidiaries to meet privacy standards pertaining to the exchange of personal information. The right to data privacy is heavily regulated and rigidly enforced in Europe.

Scope Creep
“Scope creep” (as it relates to project management or change management) refers to changes and / or expansions in a project’s originally specified and approved goals while the project is in progress. As this term suggests, scope creep happens in subtle ways and usually with small adjustments—resulting in projects that take much longer to finish or may even fail before completion. 

Scope creep can occur when the project is not properly defined, documented, and / or controlled; it can also take place when new features are added to project designs that have already been approved without providing equivalent increases in budget, time, or resources.
