EU – U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD AND SWISS – U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD COMPLIANT
Integreon is committed to and fully complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss – U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States, respectively. Integreon has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the seven Privacy Shield Principles of Notice: Choice; Accountability for Onward Transfer; Security; Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation; Access; and Recourse, Enforcement and Liability. Integreon affiliates that are also covered entities under the Privacy Shield are: Integreon Managed Solutions (North Dakota), Inc., Integreon Discovery Solutions, Inc., and Integreon Discovery Solutions (DC), Inc. Since the European Union’s Court of Justice judgment rejecting the validity of the European Commission’s adequacy decision and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) issued an opinion noting a similar failure with respect to the protection afforded for data transfers provided by the Privacy Shield, Integreon recognizes that it must comply with the applicable data protection laws via alternative mechanisms.
