ROLLING MEADOW, Ill., Aug. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- QDiligence (http://www.qdiligence.com/), the leading managed questionnaire service provider for digital Directors and Officers (D&O) Questionnaires and Board Assessments, is pleased to announce its certification for the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, a program to ensure compliance with EU data protection standards on both sides of the Atlantic. QDiligence is a technology solutions company for corporate secretaries, general counsels, directors and officers. The company's unique managed questionnaire service makes compliance-related tasks easier, faster and more secure. QDiligence is the first technology vendor in this industry to join the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.
"Our EU-U.S. Privacy Shield certification on August 22, 2016, further cements our commitment to data security and data privacy," says QDiligence President Russell Maher, "and also strengthens our reputation as a leader and innovator in corporate governance technology for Director and Officer Questionnaires, board assessments and other types of compliance questionnaires."
Certifying for the Privacy Shield Framework entails a public, legally binding commitment to meet all of the program's requirements, which cover many aspects of data storage, processing and transmission, especially where third parties are concerned. In addition, the framework mandates that certified companies must clearly communicate all privacy policies to the public via print or online media. Likewise, all individuals must be informed of their rights to access their personal data, and the conditions under which law enforcement organizations would also have access.
QDiligence's managed questionnaire service for digital D&O questionnaires, board self-assessments and executive surveys can be as much as 80% faster than using traditional paper processes. Boards enjoy the flexibility of accessing and completing questionnaires on any platform, from anywhere. The platform provides one-to-one communication between governance professionals and every officer and director. As a hosted solution, there is no software to install or maintain. QDiligence builds and hosts all questionnaires on a robust platform designed exclusively to handle D&O questionnaires and board assessments, and clients have 24/7 access to these materials for streamlined management.
