Kelly Services (NASDAQ: KELYA) (NASDAQ: KELYB) announced that the U.S. Department of Commerce has affirmed Kelly's self-certification to the new EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The framework provides a legal basis to allow for transfer of personal information from the European Union (EU) to the U.S. and replaces the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor, with which Kelly Services was already compliant.
"Data privacy is a topic on the minds of many individuals today as we are living and working in a world where security breaches are more prevalent and data privacy standards, especially with respect to personal data, are becoming more stringent," said John Healy, vice president and managing director, Global Talent Supply Chain, Kelly Services. "This certification continues Kelly's practice of being a responsible business partner to our clients and employees alike. It is our obligation to protect the personal information entrusted to us."
While joining the Privacy Shield Framework is voluntary, once an eligible company makes the public commitment to comply with the Framework's requirements, the commitment will become enforceable under U.S. law.
"Given the worldwide span of our workers, clients, suppliers, and partners, we recognize the global reach of our business practices and our public accountability," Healy said.
