TRUSTe follows a three-phase process to prepare companies for EU – U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss – U.S. Privacy Shield certifications, using a combination of experienced privacy analysts and proven assessment methodology powered by the TrustArc privacy platform.
- Phase I includes a comprehensive review of the company’s privacy practices against the Privacy Shield Principles and creation of a detailed privacy findings report.
- Phase II includes a collaborative review of the findings, implementation of remediation recommendations and documentation of action item resolution.
- Phase III includes certification activation, including issuing the TRUSTe seal and activation of dispute resolution services for customer data. The solution also includes access to ongoing privacy guidance along with use of TrustArc Assessment Manager to review the compliance report.
TrustArc CEO Chris Babel said, “We believe a strong privacy management program is critical for companies to build customer trust and ensure compliance.
