On October 6, 2015, the European Court of Justice issued a judgment declaring as "invalid" the European Commission's Decision 2000/520/EC of 26 July 2000 "on the adequacy of the protection provided by the safe harbour privacy principles and related frequently asked questions issued by the US Department of Commerce."
Sungard AS will continue to abide by the Safe Harbor principles. In light of the ECJ's decision, however, please be advised that transferring data to the United States under Safe Harbor is no longer adequate. If you relied on our Safe Harbor certification to send data from Europe to us, please contact us to discuss an alternative data transfer mechanism.
