Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) and RightsDirect take data security and privacy very seriously. For all our customers and business partners, please rest assured that we are taking all reasonable steps to achieve, and then maintain, the highest level of respect and protection for your data security and privacy in compliance with the law and with best practices.
For those of you who are aware of the various certification and compliance processes required to carry through on that commitment, we are proud to report the following: CCC (including its wholly owned subsidiary RightsDirect) have successfully completed recent audits required to achieve compliance under SOC 2 Type 2 and certification under the ISO 27001 standard for various of its licensing and RightFind businesses. We anticipate ISO 27001 certification in late 2018. Our SOC and ISO preparedness activities enabled CCC to qualify in the initial group of applicants for the EU/US Privacy Shield and for recertification for 2018. The company was certified in the Swiss/US Privacy Shield program in October of 2018. In addition, our online privacy notices are reviewed annually by TRUSTe. CCC is confident that these activities are leading us to GDPR compliance as well.
