BEAVERTON, Ore. (PRWEB) May 08, 2018
iBridge, an information management company. Our business is collecting, organizing, analyzing, and interpreting data to provide a comprehensive and simplified set of results to our customers to create a competitive advantage through interpretation and use, has been certified by the European Union and U.S. Department of Commerce under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework for the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the EU to the U.S. supporting transatlantic business.
Designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework reflects the new requirements for foreign exchanges of personal data for commercial purposes after the European Court of Justice deemed the former Safe Harbor framework invalid in October 2015. The new arrangement includes stronger data protection obligations for companies receiving personal data from the EU, safeguards on U.S. government access to data, effective protection and redress for individuals, and annual joint review to monitor the implementation.
“iBridge is now certified and compliant under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework,” said iBridge’s CEO, Desh Urs. “We take data protection and privacy very seriously at iBridge. Our customers are very important to us, so we want to assure them, and their customers, that their personal information is safeguarded and that we have the most updated and appropriate protection and privacy in place for them.”
To join the voluntary Privacy Shield Framework, IBridge self-certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce and publicly committed to comply with the framework’s requirements. IBridge completed a rigorous process to align numerous privacy policies with the new regulations before receiving its certification.
