Our Statement Regarding Privacy Shield
October 12, 2020
This July, the Court of Justice of the European Union invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. This framework, which Simply Made Apps remains a certified member, established protections for transferring personal data across international borders. While this ruling was unfortunate, it did not invalidate another mechanism called Standard Contractual Clauses as a transfer mechanism.
While we still uphold each principle of Privacy Shield, we can no longer rely on it as a legal mechanism when it relates to transferring personal data to and from the United States.
We’ve worked with all our partners (subprocessors) throughout our technology chain to replace Privacy Shield with Standard Contractual Clauses. As a part of this process, we have also severed ties with several third-party partners to narrow the list of vendors we share data with to provide the Simple In/Out service.
If you require a DPA to do business, you can view the new Data Processing Addendum on our website and execute it there as well right inside your Simple In/Out account.
If you have an questions, don’t hesitate to email us. We’re proud of our privacy efforts here at Simply Made Apps and would love to discuss them further.
