Adherence to Safe Harbor (data transfers from European Union and Switzerland to the United States of America)
The European Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce have agreed to a data protection framework called the "Safe Harbor" that consists of a set of privacy principle documents and related FAQs. These documents describe how organizations that receive personal and customer data from the European Union should provide information about purpose of collection (Notice), participation (Choice), Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity, Access, and Enforcement. A discussion of these data handling issues can be found at the Commerce Department's Safe Harbor website http://export.gov/safeharbor/eg_main_018236.asp and a comprehensive Safe Harbor document set is currently available at http://export.gov/safeharbor/eg_main_018237.asp. MRV's adherence to the Safe Harbor principles also extends to the handling of personal and customer information that is received from Switzerland. A description of the Swiss program can be found at http://export.gov/safeharbor/swiss/index.asp and a comprehensive document set at http://export.gov/safeharbor/swiss/eg_main_018532.asp.
