EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has self-certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The Privacy Shield Framework replaces the earlier U.S.-E.U. Safe Harbor Framework that was invalidated in October of 2015. It is intended to provide a reliable mechanism for companies to transfer personal data from the EU to the U.S. while retaining adequate protections and safeguards and providing transparency related to the information collected. It also builds in accountability for data transfers and mechanisms for dispute resolution.
