Developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the European Commission and Swiss Administration, 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 and Switzerland to the United States.

“We take data protection and privacy very seriously,” shares Heidi Hurt, CEO & Founder, Acuity Cloud Solutions. “Our customers rely on us to deliver exceptional services and demonstrate responsible use of data within their systems. This certification supports Acuity’s ongoing commitment to the security, privacy, and availability of data for worldwide clientele.”

The Privacy Shield program requires a higher level of data protection and a strong privacy policy from organizations to comply with the enforcement of GDPR in the EU and Switzerland. Acuity completed a rigorous process to align numerous privacy policies with the new regulations before receiving its certification.
