DATA PROTECTION PARTICIPATION
We are committed to the protection and security of data by complying with the “U.S.-EU and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Frameworks” and “Massachusetts Privacy Act”. The European Commission’s Directive on Data Protection went into effect in October of 1998, and would prohibit the transfer of personal data by WWTS to non-European Union countries, including the United States, that do not meet the European Union (EU) “adequacy” standard for privacy protection. The Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), which went into effect in July 1993, followed by important modifications in January 2008, would similarly prohibit the transfer of personal data to countries that do not meet Switzerland’s “adequacy” standard for privacy protection.
Although the United States shares with the EU and Switzerland the goal of enhancing privacy protection, the United States takes a different approach to privacy from that taken by the EU and Switzerland.
The Safe Harbor Frameworks were developed to bridge this gap and WWTS maintains its compliance under the principles contained therein. Please review WWTS’ Policy on Data Protection and Privacy of Personal Information here: Policy on Data Protection and Privacy of Personal Information.
WWTS shares a commitment with Covered Entities to protect the privacy and confidentiality of Protected Health Information (PHI) that we access during the course of providing services to our end users. These services are subject to the terms of a Business Associate Agreement.
