EU model agreement between GEANT and Digicert



As you most likely know, last October Safe Harbor was declared invalid. The consequence of that is that US-based companies can no longer guarantee the adequate protection of personal data on the basis of it.

This past February the EU Commission and the United States agreed on a new framework (the EU-US Privacy Shield) which is a step towards the direction of having again european data safely exchanged with the US, but until the framework is fully ready it will probably take some time.

If you are wondering about TCS, GEANT and Digicert have lately signed an agreement based on the EU model agreement about the protection of the personal data exchanged between TCS customers and Digicert. The agreement will make sure our data is secure until the new framework is fully in place.
