Global brands already trust Cronofy's security commitments

What is Privacy Shield?

The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the European Commission, respectively, to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.

How does the recent news in relation to the EU-US Privacy shield affect me?

On Thursday 16th July 2020, the EU Court of Justice delivered a ruling in which the mechanisms for personal data transfers between the EU and the US were challenged based on the argument that US law cannot adequately ensure the protection of EU personal data. The EU Court Of Justice struck down the Privacy Shield, rendering the US a non-adequate country without any special access to Europe's personal data stream.

Cronofy will continue to maintain the situation, as the US Department of Commerce and the European Commission have initiated discussions to evaluate potentially creating an enhanced EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, which would comply with the 16th July 2020 judgment.

How does this benefit Cronofy Customers?

Cronofy being a member of the EU-US Privacy Shield, administered by the ITA (International Trade Administration). Our membership to the EU-US Privacy Shield is a commitment by Cronofy - publicly agreeing to compliance with the Framework’s requirements.

Whilst Cronofy does not transfer data across the Atlantic (data remains local to the data centre it’s created in), customers are safe in the knowledge that Cronofy is bound by the laws outlined within the framework.
