Appdetex is Committed to Data Security
SOC 2 Type 2 Audit.
Reflecting our commitment to provide best-in-industry security practices and build on the trust of our customers, Appdetex recently completed a SOC 2 Type 2 audit. This rigorous independent audit, based on the AICPA’s Trust Service Criteria, tested the operating effectiveness of our system as it relates to security, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Successfully completing a SOC 2 Type 2 audit provides our customers with the assurance that an independent assessment has confirmed our ability to keep their sensitive data secure and comply with all applicable privacy laws. The audit report includes a description of our trust services and controls, as well as the auditor’s opinion on the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of our security and confidentiality practices. The report can be made available upon the execution of an NDA.
Independent Data Security Assessment
Appdetex has also undertaken an independent assessment of its controls over the privacy and security of the data we collect in connection with performing brand protection services for our global customer base. Not only is the protection of confidential and private data required by an increasing number of countries and jurisdictions, but we believe that conducting this deeper analysis of our privacy and security controls further demonstrates our dedication to protecting our customers’ data.
EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework
We have certified to the Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles within the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework regarding the collection, use, and retention of any personal information from European Union member countries, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Principles, visit here. Although recent court rulings have stated that companies like Appdetex can no longer rely on the Privacy Shield as a cross-border transfer mechanism, we do continue to keep our commitments under our Privacy Shield certification. As an alternative, however, we have implemented GDPR Standard Contractual Clauses along with other appropriate transfer mechanisms by agreement with our customers.
