EU Safe Harbor Certified

Here at Ning, we take your privacy very seriously and are committed to maintaining high standards of data privacy. We recognize that privacy expectations (and regulations) can get complicated as data travels around the world, so we’re eager to make things simpler for Ning Creators. We’re happy to announce that Ning is now part of the European Union (EU) Data Privacy Safe Harbor.

As background, the European Community has established a data protection regime that regulates the transfer of personal data of individuals in the EU to non-EU nations that don’t meet certain “adequacy” standards for privacy protection. The EU Safe Harbor provides a method for U.S. companies to comply with these European privacy laws and efficiently transmit data across U.S. and EU borders.

This is good news, especially for our Ning Creators in the EU! For more details regarding the EU Safe Harbor Framework, take a look at the U.S. Department of Commerce’s website.

    Remember that Safe harbor is a self-regulatory scheme. It is great that companies feel more responsibility toward personal data, enough to sign up to and abide by the EEA (European Economic Area) regulations, but it does not ‘guarantee’ that data privacy issues will not occur…I’m sure there isn’t a system in the world that can offer this security.

    But well done, Ning…this is definitely another tick in the ‘customer query’ box for some of my EEA clients.

    Good News to know that Ning meets EU Safe Harbor Standards.
    Now I know that I do not have to change a thing about the Safe Harbor compliance in any of the sites I operate that link to/from my Ning Networks!
