At any given time, a huge percentage of our customers are based outside of the United States. With customers in more than 60 countries, ServInt has terrific connectivity to Europe, Asia, Oceania, and Africa.
Because of our international clientele, we do everything that we can to ensure that our products and services stay compliant with all necessary regulations, both foreign and domestic. We pride ourselves on a host that stands up for the rights of its customers, and as such I’m proud to announce that we’ve recently completed our 2010 Safe Harbor Re-certification.
While this particular provision deals most directly with clients in the European Union, I think it speaks to our continued commitment to protecting the rights and the privacy of our clients all over the world.
For those that don’t know exactly what the US-EU Safe Harbor certification is, it is essentially the framework by which a US based company complies with the standards of privacy laid out by EU Directive 95/46/EC, better known as the EU Data Protection Directive. The directive outlines how a US based company should handle the private information of European clients. You can find more information about the Directive, as well as the Safe Harbor certification as a whole, on Wikipedia.
We’re excited to once again prove to our friends all over the world just how committed we are to maintaining a long-term, respectful relationship with our clients in regards to their data.
