OmniComm Systems receives EU-U.S. Privacy Shield CertificationThursday, August 31, 2017
“This is an important achievement,” said Djuro Blanuscha, OmniComm Europe GmbH’s data protection officer. “We have made great efforts to implement the high European data protection standards throughout the entire company, and we will continue to work to ensure compliance with the related regulations in the future.”
The U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission developed the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks “to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce,” according to a statement from the Privacy Shield program.
The Privacy Shield has replaced the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Program, which was invalidated in October of 2015. More information about the Privacy Shield can be found at: https://www.privacyshield.gov
“OmniComm values and respects the confidentiality and the protection of personal data. With our commitment to comply with Privacy Shield requirements, we assure our European clients and partners that their personal information is handled in adherence to the strict European data privacy principles when it is transferred to the U.S.,” said Yvonne Rollinger, Ph.D., managing director of OmniComm Europe GmbH.
