European Union – Privacy Shield

In July, 2016, the Privacy Shield framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the European Commission, and the Swiss Administration to help companies comply with data protection requirements of the EU and Switzerland.

DrivingSchoolSoftware.com participates in the EU Privacy Shield.

On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union, invalidated the privacy shield as a substitute for compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Privacy Shield continues to be in effect for Switzerland. A key factor contributing to the invalidation was the permissible transfer of personal data from the EU to the US under certain circumstances. DrivingSchoolSoftware.com customers are always in control over the storage and transmission of their personal data. DrivingSchoolSoftware.com software and system processes can only transmit personal data with the express instruction of the customer.
