doeLEGAL announces its self-certification was approved to be listed with the US Department of Commerce for both the EU-US Privacy Shield and now the newer Swiss-US Privacy Shield. This replaces the old Safe Harbor self-certifications by the Department of Commerce. The change signifies an ongoing commitment to ensure that European-based clients have confidence in their privacy during website visits and that they are protected with compliant data security for the data they transfer to and receive from doeLEGAL. The new Privacy Shield framework also provides for improved resolutions to any issues that may arise from data use. The goal of the new programs are to instill confidence that the companies listed on the US Department of Commerce’s website have had their privacy policies and procedures analyzed and approved as “Compliant” with all stated self-certification requirements as stated in the Privacy Shield Framework for each program.
Both credentials are awarded through self-certification applications. The privacy policies and dispute resolution procedures must then be accredited by the governing bodies that check published privacy policies and data usage statements on our website. These commitments to our clients and visitors demonstrate the continuing efforts that show our value and dedication to our visitors and clients.
Our approval is clearly shown with our listing on the Privacy Shield Website. Simply search for doeLEGAL and you’ll see the listing as it is shown below:
