BlueDot is Privacy Shield Certified

Prepared for the new era in privacy regulation


BlueDot is happy to announce we received approval from the U.S. Department of Commerce for its EU-U.S. Privacy Shield certifications (“Privacy Shield”). This certification demonstrate BlueDot's commitment to data privacy, security, and transparency. BlueDot's participation in Privacy Shield is applicable to all EU personal data that is subject to BlueDot’s Privacy Policies and thus no action is required by a customer or visitor to BlueDot’s website to benefit from its protections.

Designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the European Commission, Privacy Shield provides companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism for complying with the EU’s data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the EU and Switzerland to the United States.

To participate in Privacy Shield, a company must commit to a range of data protection principles that are consistent with the core requirements of EU law, including that they will:

  • Provide transparent information to individuals about what personal information is collected, how it is used, and the types of third parties with whom it is shared, along with a number of other important disclosures such as:
  • Maintain data integrity and purpose limitation
  • Ensure accountability for data that is onward transferred to third parties by requiring such third parties to agree to strict contractual terms for the same level of privacy protection as Privacy Shield
  • Implement reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect personal data
  • Provide access, rectification, and deletion rights to EU and Swiss individuals
  • Provide a comprehensive and independent complaints-handling process for privacy-related complaints
  • Review, assess, and certify on an annual basis that all Privacy Shield requirements are met

BlueDot will work hard to maintain its Privacy Shield commitments and looks forward to the success of the program. We support Privacy Shield as an important way to protect the privacy of individuals and promote trust, while enabling the transatlantic flow of data that is essential to our global economy.
