Insignia Health supports the comprehensive legal and collaborative framework that enables secure and efficient data flows within and between countries. As such, Insignia Health has applied for and received Privacy Shield certification. We are also compliant with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Why is this important?
Our clients require the highest level of secure data exchange between our systems and theirs to assist with administering and scoring PAM® and delivering PAM-based coaching guidance.
As new privacy and security standards evolve, both in the U.S. and in other countries, you can be assured that Insignia Health will strive for full compliance and the highest levels of certification possible.
About Privacy Shield
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 from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.
General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’), regulates the processing by an individual, a company or an organisation of personal data relating to individuals in the EU. It doesn’t apply to the processing of personal data of deceased persons or of legal entities. The rules don’t apply to data processed by an individual for purely personal reasons or for activities carried out in one’s home, provided there is no connection to a professional or commercial activity. When an individual uses personal data outside the personal sphere, for socio-cultural or financial activities, for example, then the data protection law has to be respected.
