About the Safe Harbor:

The “U.S.-EU Safe Harbor” program was established cooperatively by the United States Department of Commerce and the European Commission in 2000. This program sets forth the principles for the transfer of personal information from the European Union (“EU”) to companies operating in the United States.

Participation in the Safe Harbor programs is voluntary for companies operating in the United States. Companies participating in the Safe Harbor programs annually self-certify compliance with privacy standards adopted by the EU Commission and the United States Department of Commerce.


This Safe Harbor Statement governs personal information transferred from countries in the EU to the United States and in connection with Seeing Interactive, Inc. business activities.

Personal information shall not include information that is anonymous, stripped of identifying details, encoded or encrypted, or aggregated. Personal information also shall not include any information that is publicly available, except where such public information is supplemented with non-public, personally identifying information.
