Certiphi Screening receives EU-US Privacy Shield certification
On Friday, August 12, Certiphi Screening received notification from the International Trade Administration/U.S. Department of Commerce approved our EU-US Privacy Shield self-certification.
The EU-US Privacy Shield is a framework for facilitating EU-US data transfers that is replacing the previous Safe Harbor framework that was invalidated by the European Court of Justice in October 2015.
By self-certifying our compliance with the privacy principles of Privacy Shield, we are ensuring that any collection, use and retention of any personal information from European Union countries will accord with new EU data protection law requirements. This certification will ultimately provide our clients with a better data transfer mechanism than the previously-utilized Safe Harbor program.
For more information on the EU-US Privacy Shield, you can refer to the European Commission’s recently released adequacy decision, which can be found here.
