This certification demonstrates our commitment to comply with data protection requirements when lawfully transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States.

What is Privacy Shield?

Privacy Shield is a self-certification program that enables organizations to lawfully transfer personal data from the EU to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. The framework provides privacy protections for Europeans, including a say on how their information is used and a direct avenue for resolving complaints.

What are the requirements for iMocha?

  • Maintaining data integrity and purpose limitation
  • Implementing appropriate security controls and policies
  • Ensuring accountability for data transferred to third parties
  • Conducting reviews on an annual basis that all Privacy Shield requirements are met

What does it mean for our customers?

In one word - Trust. We are a SaaS based skills assessment platform hosted on Microsoft Azure. Our EU-US Privacy Shield certification means that we have adhered to all the security measures required to transfer any personal data from EU to United States.
