European Court of Justice’s Decision Regarding the EU-US Safe Harbor Framework

In light of the European Court of Justice’s decision on October 6, 2015, regarding the EU-US Safe Harbor Framework, Widen is immediately offering customers a data processing addendum incorporating the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses, commonly referred to as “model clauses.”

What did the European Court of Justice decide regarding
the EU-US Safe Harbor Framework?

On October 6, 2015, the European Court of Justice determined that the EU-US Safe Harbor Framework does not provide a valid legal basis for transfers of personal data from Europe to the U.S.

What is the EU-US Safe Harbor Framework?

Widen Enterprises, Inc. complies with the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework and US-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. Widen Enterprises, Inc. has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward tranfer, security, data integrity, access and enforcement. If there is any conflict between the policies in this privacy policy and the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles, the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program and to view our certification page, please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor.

In compliance with the US-EU and US-Swiss Safe Harbor Principles, Widen Enterprises, Inc. commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information. European Union or Swiss citizens with inquiries or complaints regarding this privacy policy should first contact Privacy Policy Associate at privacy@widen.com 

Widen Enterprises, Inc. has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the US-EU and US-Swiss Safe Harbor Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU SAFE HARBOR, operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you do not receive timely acknowledgement of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed by Widen Enterprises, Inc., please visit the BBB SAFE HARBOR web site at www.bbb.org/us/safe-harbor-complaints for more information and to file a complaint.

What does the European Court of Justice’s decision mean for
my company’s use of Widen services?

To ensure that our customers may continue to validate transfers of personal data from Europe to the U.S. under EU data protection laws, Widen is immediately offering its customers a data processing addendum incorporating the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses commonly known as “model clauses.” Please note that the model clauses will apply to the extent there is not another legal basis in place to validate the transfer of personal data from the EU to the U.S.

What are the model clauses?

The model clauses are contract templates developed by the European Commission as one mechanism for contracting parties to legalize the cross-border transfer of personal data from Europe. Widen’s new data processing addendum automatically incorporates the model clauses as long as transfers of personal data are not legalized by an alternative compliance standard recognized by the European Commission.

How does my company incorporate model clauses
into my Widen Master Service Agreement?

Customers should promptly complete, sign and return Widen’s new data processing addendum to privacy@widen.com.
