Becoming certified as EU-U.S. Privacy Shield compliant enables Zapproved to demonstrate compliance with EU data transfer rules and our ongoing commitment to best practices in data privacy.

“Zapproved takes data security and data privacy very seriously,” said Brad Harris, VP of Product Strategy for Zapproved. “We proactively look for ways to implement best practices, whether it be earning SOC2 ® certification or self-certifying as Privacy Shield compliant. Ensuring data security and privacy is part of our ongoing commitment to our many customers who engage in commerce globally.”
