Are you Privacy Shield certified?
We take data privacy and protection very seriously, including the transfer of personal data from the EU to the US.
Calendly has incorporated the Standard Contractual Clauses into its Data Processing Agreements as its transfer mechanism, an approved safeguard and a recognized alternative to Privacy Shield, and we are actively examining self-certification under Privacy Shield.
Additionally, our subprocessors of data are either Privacy Shield certified or have signed Data Processing Addendums (DPAs) with Calendly. For example, we store data in Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) and Google (select back-ups) which are both Privacy Shield certified.
Calendly is monitoring the legal challenges to the Privacy Shield framework but is continuing to explore whether it will certify to it. In the meantime, the Standard Contractual Clauses ensure that adequate safeguards are in place for any onward transfers of personal data to Calendly.
