Orlando, Fl (PRWEB) March 08, 2013
Client Intellect, Inc. has successfully completed the United States – European Union Safe Harbor self-certification process. This ensures that the company is complying with the international privacy guidelines established by the European Union.
The European Commission’s Directive on Data Protection, established in 1998, prohibits the transfer of personal data to nations that do not meet the EU’s “adequacy” standard for privacy protection.
The U.S. Department of Commerce developed the Safe Harbor framework to bridge differences between U.S. and E.U. privacy law, and it is intended to prevent accidental information disclosure by organizations that store customer data.
As part of the voluntary certification process, Client Intellect demonstrated compliance with the seven Safe Harbor principles, which include guidelines around maintaining transparent customer communications; ensuring security, privacy and integrity of customer data, and providing an open avenue for customers to contact the company with concerns.
“As the amount of data we share every day grows, the concern about the privacy of that data grows with it,” said Eric Pratt CEO of Client Intellect. “Protecting customer data has always been of paramount importance to our business, our participation in this standard assures to our customers that their data is safe with us.”
