Q.Is Showbie compliant with US EU Safe Harbour?
A. Yes. The European Commission has determined that certain countries have an adequate level of protection for personal data. Currently, the following countries are considered as having adequate protection:
- Faroe Islands
- Isle of Man
- New Zealand
Showbie is a Canadian company.
Although the United States of America (US) is not included in the European Commission list, the Commission considers that personal data sent to the US under the voluntary “Safe Harbor” certification is adequately protected.
Showbie strives for optimal performance, reliability and data security and as such maintains portions of it’s infrastructure in the US on hosted servers that are maintained by a Safe harbour certified provider. This Safe Harbor certification can be viewed on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Safe Harbor Web site.
