A few months ago, I shared my thoughts on Privacy Shield developments and how businesses could prepare for it.  Now that the Privacy Shield Framework has been adopted by the European Union and United States, I am happy to announce that Janrain has implemented the Privacy Shield PrinciplesIn addition, our certification of adherence to those principles has been accepted by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) following TRUSTe’s positive assessment that our practices align to the Privacy Shield requirements.

As the European Commission has recognized, participation in the Privacy Shield Framework, which replaces the invalidated Safe Harbor Framework, provides European individuals with more transparency about transfers of personal data to the United States and stronger protection of personal data. Accordingly, as Janrain has focused on enhancing its security and privacy controls, increasing transparency and providing stronger protection for the personal data of our clients’ customers, it made sense for us to participate in the Privacy Shield Framework.
