Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) and RightsDirect take data security and privacy very seriously.
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. In addition, our online privacy notices are reviewed annually by TRUSTe. To check current certification status check here. CCC is confident that these activities are leading us to GDPR compliance as well.
