Bloomington, IN (October 14)-Veer West LLC announced today that the company’s leading web form management solution, FormAssembly, is now compliant with the new EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.
“With a number of International customers, complying with evolving security standards and requirements is always a top priority for us and our business,” said FormAssembly CEO Cedric Savarese. “Our compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield is no exception.”
FormAssembly sought the assistance of third party auditor TRUSTe in ensuring EU-U.S. Privacy Shield compliance.
The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield has been adopted in the wake of the Safe Harbor Framework, which was invalidated by the Court of Justice of the European Union in October of last year.
- Added security obligation on companies handling data
- Safeguards and transparency in relation to government data access
- Increased protection of European individual rights
- Annual review mechanism
For European customers, this means increased transparency regarding transfers of personal data to the U.S., in addition to stronger protection of that data.
