(The Hosting News) – ORCS Web Inc., a web hosting provider specializing in Microsoft Windows hosting solutions announced it has attained TRUSTe certified US-EU Safe Harbor compliance as a managed hosting provider. The TRUSTe seal communicates to an international audience that OrcsWeb handles personal data privacy matters with the utmost importance.
Attaining the TRUSTe U.S.-EU Safe Harbor compliance meant demonstrating the OrcsWeb privacy best practices already in place. The TRUSTe seal of compliance is only awarded after a company completes the certification process. In order to maintain compliance, companies must agree to ongoing monitoring and must also participate in TRUSTe’s consumer privacy dispute resolution program.
The TRUSTe seal indicates the highest levels of privacy best practices, including compliance with the guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce. These guidelines pertain to the collection, use and retention of personal data from Switzerland and members of the European Union. As a managed Windows hosting provider serving companies in 70+ countries (Including the UK and other EU countries), TRUSTe compliance gives OrcsWeb clients an extra level of confidence regarding the privacy and security of their information.
“With all the news coming out these days about companies mishandling personal information, we wanted to give new and existing clients the opportunity to see our commitment to their personal privacy as verified by an authorized 3rd party,” said Brad Kingsley, founder and CEO of OrcsWeb. “We couldn’t think of a better way to do that than by allowing TRUSTe the opportunity to thoroughly review how we collect and use personal information.”
According to TRUSTe, as can be found in the OrcsWeb privacy page:
Thousands of companies rely on TRUSTe’s leading online privacy seal to enhance consumer trust, drive increased registrations and transactions, and comply with complex privacy requirements. TRUSTe has certified more than 40 percent of the top fifty Web sites including Yahoo, Microsoft, eBay, AOL, AT&T, Comcast, Disney, Weather.com, LinkedIn, Web MD, and Yelp. Notable companies certified to display TRUSTe’s EU Safe Harbor Seal include Adobe, Apple, Facebook, Best Buy, and Electronic Arts.
