eCLINICAL SOLUTIONS LLC COMPLETES EU– U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD AND SWISS – U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD CERTIFICATIONS
Mansfield, MA, August 08, 2017:
eClinical Solutions LLC, a leading provider of centralized software and services to the life sciences industry, today announced it has achieved EU – U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss – U.S. Privacy Shield certifications with the U.S. Department of Commerce. eClinical Solutions LLC worked with TRUSTe LLC (“TRUSTe”), a wholly owned subsidiary of TrustArc Inc, to review and verify that they comply with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss – U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States, respectively. TRUSTe also will provide independent dispute resolution services to address privacy-related questions around customer data from users and ongoing access to privacy guidance.
By working with TRUSTe, eClinical Solutions LLC is showing its commitment to protecting the privacy of its customers.
“As our business has continued to expand and with increased adoption of elluminate® Data Intelligence Hub, customers are increasingly having us provide support for global programs,” comments Bob Arnesen, President of eClinical Solutions LLC. “We felt it was important that we proactively met these important data privacy requirements and could thereby deliver a high degree of assurance to our customers that personal data, used by eClinical Solutions regardless of how it was collected, is maintained in a secure fashion.”
TRUSTe follows a three-phase process to prepare companies for their EU – U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss – U.S. Privacy Shield certifications, using a combination of experienced privacy analysts and proven assessment methodology powered by the TrustArc privacy technology platform. Phase I includes a comprehensive review of the company’s privacy practices against the Privacy Shield Principles and creation of a detailed privacy finding report. Phase II includes a collaborative review of the findings, implementation of remediation recommendations and documentation of action item completion. Phase III includes certification activation including issuing the TRUSTe seal, providing dispute resolution services for customer data, and access to privacy guidance along with the privacy findings report in TrustArc’s Assessment Manager to support ongoing privacy compliance.
TrustArc CEO Chris Babel said, “We believe a strong privacy management program is critical for companies to build customer trust and ensure compliance. We reviewed the practices of eClinical Solutions LLC to help ensure that they meet the requirements of the EU and Swiss Privacy Shield Frameworks and can demonstrate their privacy commitment to users, partners and regulators.”
