What is Privacy Pact and what it does for you ?


The Privacy Pact is a voluntary legally binding mechanism for entities located outside of the European Union to voluntarily and contractually commit to respect and abide to the European Data Protection Law (i.e. Regulation 679/2016 – “GDPR”, Directive 2002/58/EC – “E-Privacy Directive”).

It provides your organization with a respected and trustworthy seal that shows your commitment to comply with the European privacy and data protection law, with the potential of building trust in developing business activities in one of the largest market in the world, the European Union.

Privacy PACT has been developed by the European research project Privacy Flag and is run as an open service overviewed by legal experts.

The PACT is provided against a minor application fee (1euro) intended to launch and support this service, until the end of the Privacy Flag project.

The Privacy Pact is a voluntary legally binding mechanism for entities located outside of the European Union to voluntarily and contractually commit to respect and abide to the European Data Protection Law (i.e. Regulation 679/2016 – “GDPR”, Directive 2002/58/EC – “E-Privacy Directive”). The Privacy PACT has been drafted by privacy experts in the context of a EU funded project – “Privacy Flag”, overviewed by the European Commission and independent experts.

Privacy PACT enables legal entities to voluntarily, formally and contractually commit to abide to the European obligations, regardless of their place of establishment and/or activity. However, Privacy PACT does not constitute a certification in the reading of article 42 of the GDPR, and it does not guarantee that applicants are necessarily compliant with the mentioned legal obligations.

Privacy PACT declines any responsibility whatsoever regarding the effective actions, measures and practices of applicants.
