Compliance engineered for the Cloud
Salesforce maintains a comprehensive set of compliance certifications and attestations to validate our #1 value of Trust.
For certain Services, for which we act as a data processor, Salesforce has certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework. For more details about the scope of the certification see here. For additional information about the multiple legal mechanisms (including EU Standard Contractual Clauses) which Salesforce has to help customers validate transfers of personal data from the European Economic Area to Salesforce's services, please see our Data Processing Addendum. The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.
