WinWeb Is Compliant With the U.S.-EU and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework

WinWeb is compliant with the U.S.-EU and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework.

To explain what this means, here a quote from U.S. Department of Trade website:

The European Commission’s Directive on Data Protection went into effect in October of 1998, and would prohibit the transfer of personal data to non-European Union countries that do not meet the European Union (EU) “adequacy” standard for privacy protection. While the United States and the EU share the goal of enhancing privacy protection for their citizens, the United States takes a different approach to privacy from that taken by the EU.

In order to bridge these different privacy approaches and provide a streamlined means for U.S. organisations to comply with the Directive, the U.S. Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission developed a “Safe Harbor” framework and this website to provide the information an organisation should need to evaluate – and then join – the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor program.

Similarly, the U.S. Department of Commerce in consultation with the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner of Switzerland developed a “Safe Harbor” framework to bridge the differences between the two countries’ privacy approaches and provide a streamlined means for U.S. organisations to comply with the Swiss data protection law. This website also provides the information an organisation should need to evaluate – and then join – the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor program.

WinWeb has chosen to self-certify its compliance with the framework, you can find our listing here.
