About the European Union's Decision on Privacy Shield

EchoSpan's response to the recent invalidation of Privacy Shield

Articles » About the European Union's Decision on Privacy Shield

On Thursday July 16th, 2020, the Court of Justice for the European Union ruled that the validity of the EU-US Privacy Shield program will no longer be recognized.
Please note that this decision does not impact EchoSpan's customers use of our tools. Since the inception of the Privacy Shield program, we've offered clients data transfer protection under it as well as under Standard Contract Clauses (SCCs). The EU still recognizes the validity of SCCs, and, moving forward, all EchoSpan customers will be afforded protections under them.
All customers automatically receive protection under SCCs when they agree to EchoSpan's terms and conditions. However, if your company would like a fully executed hard copy of an SCC, please contact your client manager and we'll gladly provide one to you.
As a reminder, EchoSpan has always made user privacy and data security a top priority. We are a fully-compliant adherent to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Our SOC-2 compliant data center features dedicated hardware and all data stored in them is encrypted at rest using industry-leading, hardware based data security management tools. More about our commitment to the security and availability of your data can be found here. We have never and never will sell or transfer our customers' data to anyone for any reason.
If you have any questions about this change, please do not hesitate to contact us.
