ACT Litigation Certified as Compliant With E.U., Switzerland Safe Harbor Frameworks

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 10, 2009) - ACT Litigation Services, Inc., a leading provider of electronic discovery, document review and litigation management consulting for corporate legal departments, insurance companies and law firms, has announced that the U.S. Department of Commerce has certified the company as compliant with both the U.S.-European Union and the U.S.-Switzerland Safe Harbor Frameworks.

The U.S.-European Safe Harbor Framework was set up by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission in 2000 to bridge the different privacy approaches and provide a streamlined means for U.S. organizations to comply with the European Commission's Directive on Data Protection. The similar U.S.-Swiss framework was added by the Commerce Department and the Federal Data Protection and Information Commission of Switzerland in 2008 to cover that country's own data privacy laws. Compliance with the frameworks enable U.S. companies to more efficiently serve the needs of their clients and minimize delays in the transfer of data.

"We've always taken security and privacy seriously, and as we've expanded our client base achieving these certifications became the next logical step," said Steve Marks, CEO of ACT Litigation Services. The safe harbor frameworks ensure ACT's clients that their data can be lawfully transferred from the European Union for processing and review.

Organizations that participate in the Safe Harbor programs must adhere to a policy that meets the respective Safe Harbor Frameworks and publicly declare that they do so.
