New York, NY – May 18, 2023 – Proctortrack has announced tight compliance with the Privacy Shield Certification. The products and services by Proctortrack participate in the program regarding data usage, collection, and processing of data from the European Union to the United States.
Data privacy has become a pressing concern for individuals and organizations as the world becomes more interconnected. In today’s digital age, personal data is constantly being collected, stored, and shared across borders. This has led to international agreements and regulations designed to protect data privacy, such as the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield program.
What is Privacy Shield Certification?
The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield program was established in 2016 as a replacement for the Safe Harbor program. It was struck down by the European Court of Justice in 2015. The Privacy Shield program has provisions to allow companies to transfer personal data from the European Union to the United States, ensuring that data protection follows European data protection standards.
To participate in the Privacy Shield program, companies must self-certify with the U.S. Department of Commerce and publicly commit to comply with the Privacy Shield Framework’s requirements. The Privacy Shield Framework requires companies to implement strong data protection measures. Also give individuals the right to access, correct, or delete their data.
