Europrivacy™/® – The first European Data Protection Seal

There are considerable advantages for entities that certify some, or all, of their personal data processing activities to Europrivacy:

  • Demonstrate to customers, clients, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders that protection of personal data being processed is of utmost importance.
  • Reduce the financial and legal risks of non-compliance with the requirements of the GDPR. Non-compliance could lead to fines of up to £17.5 million (€20 million/ about $21.5 million) or 4% of total worldwide turnover, whichever is greater.
  • Get peace of mind that Europrivacy checks and controls are continually updated to take into account any regulatory or legislative changes, advice and guidance from the EDPB, and changes to national and domain-specific obligations.
