Hyland and the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield

Customer update: Hyland and the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield

Recently, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued a ruling that invalidated the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, but affirmed that Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) remain an acceptable method to transfer personal data outside of the EU.

How does this impact Hyland customers?

Customers can continue to use Hyland services in compliance with EU data privacy law. Hyland has intracompany SCCs in place to protect any transfers of customers' personal data outside the EU. As the SCCs remain a valid method of transfer under the CJEU ruling, customers can continue to rely on SCCs as a compliant method to transfer customer data outside the EU. For the future, Hyland will offer customers new direct SCCs.

Further, Hyland will continue to comply with its commitments under its EU-U.S. Privacy Shield certification despite the CJEU ruling.

We are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers’ data. We continue to monitor and evaluate new guidance as it emerges. Should you have any questions about your data processing agreement, Hyland’s SCCs or any other questions related to data privacy, please contact [email protected]
