Data Privacy Update as of March, 2016
EU and Swiss Safe Harbor Privacy Certification
Gartner complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. While Gartner relies on alternate data transfer mechanisms approved by the European Commission to ensure the lawful transfer of EU personal data to the US, we continue to certify our adherence to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor Program, and to view Gartner’s certification, please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/.
Global Data Transfer
To ensure that all Gartner entities around the globe adhere to the same data privacy standards and safeguards, Gartner has arranged for those Gartner legal entities not covered by the Safe Harbor Framework to enter into Global Data Transfer Agreements that require them to implement similar policies and protocols. This arrangement allows Gartner to transfer personal data in its care freely and safely across the company, as necessary to administer the Gartner products and services.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Regional Privacy Contacts located on the home page of the Gartner Global Privacy Center.
