The Easy Way to Ensure Privacy Compliance

privacy_shield (1)BlueVolt has proactively taken a leadership position regarding compliance with the increasingly important international standards for personal privacy.  Our goal is to ensure that working with BlueVolt guarantees online training that meets strict privacy standards. 

BlueVolt accomplished this by becoming an  EU-US Privacy Shield Certified company. That certification assures you that by partnering with BlueVolt  you'll deliver online learning that complies with the rigorous European Union privacy laws. No more compliance analysis. No negotiating. No international privacy lawyers. Just a simple guarantee of compliance.

If you know what the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is you will likely view this as a great reason to put your trust in BlueVolt. But most of us are just beginning to understand these regulations, so let’s not assume prior knowledge. Let’s take a step back and ask: “What is this and why should I care?

The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework represents a partnership between the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission. It is administered by the International Trade Administration. Certified compliance with this framework assures our colleagues in the EU that they can transact business with BlueVolt via an EU regulatory-compliant privacy policy.

If you are headquartered or have significant commercial interest in the EU, here are 3 reasons why working with BlueVolt to deliver online training will simplify your privacy compliance:

  1. BlueVolt is officially deemed to provide privacy protection as required for the transfer of personal data outside of the European Union under the EU Data Protection Directive.
  2. EU requirements for prior approval of data transfers via the BlueVolt platform are either waived, or approval will be automatically granted.
  3. Compliance requirements are clearly defined and our privacy policy accords with them.

It’s now easier than ever for business entities with regulated ties to Europe to do business with BlueVolt. Contact us and we’ll show you how.
