What exactly is Privacy Shield?

Privacy Shield is a security certification that ensures protection against the misuse and unwarranted collection of personally identifying information. This certification is only given to companies who adhere to the highest data privacy standards, another way that IndySoft ensures you can rest easy knowing that your data is safe with us.

Privacy Shield was created by the U.S. Department of Commerce, European Commission and Swiss Administration to support commerce between countries and fulfill data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union (EU) and Switzerland to the U.S.

What this means is that IndySoft is now certified to be fully compliant with all regulations regarding the collection and transfer of data to and from the EU.  Because EU data privacy laws are so stringent, this ensures that your data will always be handled with the utmost care.

  • Maintaining data integrity and purpose limitation
