Today, we are proud to announce that Global-Z is one of the top global data quality vendors to certify with the new EU-US Privacy Shield by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Our self-certification was declared official and finalized during the 2016 holiday break on 12/27/2016.
The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.
“Global-Z International is committed to the privacy and security of our clients’ information globally,” said Dimitri Garder, CEO of Global-Z International. “In the new and rapidly changing age of personal data and information protection, Global-Z is committed to meet the challenges to protect all customer and client data.”
