Each year companies are conducting more of their daily operations and their dealings with other businesses via the Internet, meaning security and protection of personal information is imperative. UniFocus is proud to announce its participation in the TRUSTe® U.S.-EU Safe Harbor program. Compliance with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework assures both domestic and international clients that their data is truly protected.
“Our workforce management systems collect personal information from our partners and their employees, and we take all necessary measures to guarantee all security sensitive information is being safeguarded,” says Thomas J. Tinker, IT Director at UniFocus.
Participation in the Safe Harbor program eases the process European organizations undergo when partnering with U.S. businesses. It streamlines compliance requirements, eliminates interruptions, and is ultimately cost-effective by operating under the Safe Harbor framework. In partnering with UniFocus European companies can be confident they’re working with an organization that understands EU information protection concerns.
“Maintaining the highest standards of consumer security, transparency, and setting clear privacy guidelines is of the utmost importance to us,” explains Mark Heymann, President and CEO of UniFocus. “Our partners can take comfort in knowing their most crucial information is being secured under best practices that are in compliance with national and international data protection policies.”
TRUSTe is the leading global Data Privacy Management (DPM) company, and powers trust in the data economy by enabling businesses to safely collect and use customer data across web, mobile, cloud and advertising channels.
TRUSTe's mission, as an independent third party, is to accelerate online trust among consumers and organizations globally through its leading privacy trustmark and innovative trust solutions.
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 differences in approach and provide a streamlined means for U.S. organizations 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 organization would need to evaluate – and then join – the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor program.
