SAN FRANCISCO, California (February 15, 2018) – Gappify, Inc. (“Gappify”) a leading innovative solution-provider for corporate accountants, announced today that it has received the official EU-U.S. Privacy Shield certification from the U.S. Department of Commerce. Developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission, the Privacy Shield Framework provides 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.
“As a provider of software solutions with users around the globe, we take our responsibility of protecting our customer’s data very seriously. Obtaining Privacy Shield certification is just the start of many initiatives we have planned to demonstrate our commitment to data protection.”
The Privacy Shield program was established to bridge the different approaches to data privacy between the U.S. and European Union. Its goal is to ensure statutory authority to foster, promote, and develop international commerce, based on effective safeguards and protections as developed in consultation with the European Commission, industry, and other stakeholders in international trade and commerce. The program is administered by the International Trade Administration (ITA) within the U.S. Department of Commerce; once participants self-certify according to established guidelines, they are held accountable for compliance under U.S. law.
