mce is now Privacy Shield framework certified
Updated: Apr 14, 2020
As part of mce's commitment to the protection of our customers' data, and their customers' data, mce became certified for the Privacy Shield framework (1).
mce is now certified for both the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. frameworks. This was done as part of the continuous improvement plan for security and privacy protection which mce is committed to.
mce is also compliant with GDPR (2), ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (3) and ISO/IEC 27017:2015 (4)
From the Privacy Shield website:
The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the European Commission and Swiss Administration, respectively, to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data ...
The data protection compliance applies to all of mce omni-channel solutions and products and includes mce's cloud data services, analytics and the Mobix solution.
All of mce's services and infrastructure are built with a 'customer first' approach, and are carrier and enterprise grade. In reality it enforces stricter privacy and security protocols than the ones required by Privacy Shield to protect both the end customers and the enterprises serving them.
