What is EU-U.S. Privacy Shield?

Our EU-U.S. Privacy Shield certification ensures European and U.S. customers that Secure Data Recovery Services adheres to the requirements of both the EU Data Protection Directive and the Swiss Act on Data Protection, which share 23 privacy and supplemental principles regarding an organization's handling of personal data from the EU.

  • Provision of adequate privacy protection protocols, mechanisms and standards
  • Disclosure of personal data types collected, the relevant purposes for which they are collected and the rights of individuals to access their data
