EU: European Privacy Seal now available for websites with exceptional EU data privacy

2B Advice
EuroPriSe announced on April 26 that it is now offering the European Privacy Seal to websites that meet the seal's "high-quality requirements" for data privacy. Previously, EuroPriSe only offered its seal to products and services. The EuroPriSe Website Certification provides businesses with a new opportunity to showcase their commitment to privacy online.

EuroPriSe touts the new seal as an affordable option that doesn't skimp on quality. According to EuroPriSe, the price of the new website certification is "10.000 Euro, which breaks down to 8.000 Euro for the evaluation of the website by legal and technical experts and 2.000 Euro for the work of the EuroPriSe Certification Authority." This affordability is made possible by moving much of the certification process online:

  • The new "one-stop contracting experience" enables prospective seal holders to prepare for and order the seal all in one place on the EuroPriSe website.
  • The "Online Evaluation Tool" streamlines and simplifies the privacy evaluation process by providing EuroPriSe Experts with standardized templates that can also be accessed all in one place online.

Websites carrying the EuroPriSe Website Certification seal can rest assured that they are compliant with EU privacy law, because the seal's "high-quality requirements" are even stricter than that of the forthcoming GDPR or any other privacy laws in the EU. Thus, achievement of the seal should provide some safeguard in this area and also be seen as a true demonstration of the website's high level of commitment to privacy.
