WorkWave gets Swiss – US Privacy Shield certification

WorkWave®, a provider of cloud-based software solutions for the field service, last-mile delivery and logistics industries, has announced it has achieved Swiss — US Privacy Shield certification with the US Department of Commerce, the company said.

WorkWave partnered with TRUSTe LLC (“TRUSTe”), a wholly owned subsidiary of TrustArc Inc, to review and verify that WorkWave complies with the Swiss — US Privacy Shield Framework, as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from Switzerland to the United States. TRUSTe will also provide independent dispute resolution services to address privacy-related questions around customer data from users and ongoing access to privacy guidance.

WorkWave serves thousands of businesses across the globe and its achievement of the Swiss-US Privacy Shield certification underscores its commitment to protect the privacy and data of its customers and to comply with cross border privacy and data security regulations and principles.

TRUSTe follows a three-phase process to prepare companies for their Swiss — US Privacy Shield certification, using a combination of experienced privacy analysts and proven assessment methodology powered by the TrustArc privacy technology platform.

Phase I includes a comprehensive review of the company´s privacy practices against the Privacy Shield Principles and creation of a detailed privacy finding report.

Phase II includes a collaborative review of the findings, implementation of remediation recommendations and documentation of action item completion.

Phase III includes certification activation including issuing the TRUSTe seal, providing dispute resolution services for customer data, and access to privacy guidance along with the privacy findings report in TrustArc´s Assessment Manager to support ongoing privacy compliance.
