BIG receives EU-US Privacy Shield certification
On Friday, August 12, BIG 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.
We cannot express enough how much we have enjoyed working with BIG! It has really benefitted our processing and ease of doing business!
I enjoy collaborating with BIG, and know that if I have to reach out with a question/concern, a positive attitude with a willingness to find resolve is on the other side of an email or a phone call.
You have been the most professional and most helpful business partner that I have ever been associated with — always there to assist us and with rapid turnaround times.
I am confident whenever we add a product with your company that I will have a good experience.
We have received superior service and we know this is what you and your team strive for. We are grateful for the dedication, level of professionalism and effort shown.
