On October 6th, 2015, the European Court of Justice determined that the 15-year-old US-EU Safe Harbor framework is no longer valid for the transfer of personal data from the European Economic Area (EEA) to the US. InGo, as an Amazon Web Service (AWS) customer, is not affected by this ruling as AWS has already obtained approval from EU data protection authorities (known as the Article 29 Working Party) of the AWS Data Processing Addendum and Model Clauses to enable transfer of personal data outside Europe, including to the US with our EU-approved Data Processing Addendum and Model Clauses. AWS states, “customers and partners…can continue to use AWS to transfer their customer content from EEA to the US, without altering workloads, and in compliance with EU law.” The full text of AWS’ statement can be found here.
As a further precaution, InGo has opted to deploy any EU event at our data center facility in Germany upon request.
Trust is at the heart of InGo’s business. Attendee have embraced InGo as the they have come to expect a curated experience with the utmost in data security and privacy protection.
