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.
