The "Safe Harbor" status has been developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission to denote a specific framework of data protection principles. Designed to provide U.S. organizations with a means to satisfy European Union legal requirements to protect the safety of personal information that is transferred from the EU to the United States, Safe Harbor status is granted to companies who comply with this framework. Accordingly, ClearSlide partnered with TRUSTe to completed the self-certification process to prove its commitment to data security and enact internal privacy policies for managing sensitive customer information. ClearSlide attained the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor status through its participation in the TRUSTe privacy program for TRUSTed Cloud Data, which provides professional services for privacy certification and third party dispute resolution. ClearSlide has met TRUSTe's standards to self-certify with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework, the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, and adheres to the privacy principles set forth by Safe Harbor.
In addition to today's announcement of Safe Harbor certification, ClearSlide recently announced its completion of the Conformity of Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) compliance. Working to attain Safe Harbor Status further proves ClearSlide's commitment to security and protecting the sensitive information of its clients.
Al Lieb, CEO of ClearSlide said, "As we expand our business globally, it's critical that we safeguard our customers' data and comply with international safety and privacy standards."
"Given abundant consumer privacy concerns, it's no surprise that 71% of customers look for trust marks before doing business online," said Dave Deasy, Vice President of Marketing of TRUSTe. "With the TRUSTe privacy seal, ClearSlide sends a clear signal to its customers that it respects their personal and company information."
