Update as of Feb 2, 2016

The EU Commission and United States have agreed on a new framework for transatlantic data flows and we are now considering our approach. We will continue to follow principles of good information handling to keep our customer data secure. The decision has not impacted the high standards to which we provide our services.

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:

  • Andorra

  • Argentina

  • Canada

  • Faroe Islands 

  • Guernsey

  • Isle of Man

  • Israel

  • Jersey 

  • New Zealand

  • Switzerland

  • Uruguay 

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.
