We’re proud to announce that Bluelock has completed self-certification of compliance with the United States – European Union Safe Harbor Framework. Completing this framework allows customers to use Bluelock’s service with confidence that personal information will be secure.


Bluelock undertook several internal audits to comply with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use and retention of personal information from customers.


Bluelock adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement.


In addition to Safe Harbor, TrustArc TRUSTe, the most recognized Internet privacy seal program in the world, also granted Bluelock the TRUSTe Privacy Seal, which signifies their privacy policy and practices have been reviewed for compliance with the TRUSTe program.


“As a company that protects and recovers important data and applications, it’s easy to understand why data privacy is of critical importance to Bluelock,” says Chris Babel, CEO at TRUSTe.


“With the TRUSTe privacy seal, Bluelock sends a clear signal to its customers that it respects and will protect their personal information.”


When providing cloud-enabled managed hosting services, Bluelock retains personal data processed on behalf of its clients, keeping data secure for the expanse of the customer relationship. With Safe Harbor certification, customers of Bluelock can trust their data is safe.

Attaining the Safe Harbor certification demonstrates how valuable our customers’ information and privacy is to us, and showcases our commitment to continually serve our customers better.
