European Privacy Seal Fact Sheet

Fostering Trust and Reliability

The European Privacy Seal (EuroPriSe) offers a trans-European privacy trust mark issued by an independent third party certifying compliance of IT products and IT-based services with European regulations on privacy and data security.

One of the main problems facing the information society is a lack of trust in IT products and services caused by the possibilities of electronic surveillance. Citizens and businesses often need “a good faith belief” when using privacy-relevant IT products and services. Trustworthy and reliable guidance is needed to assist users and consumers to select a privacy and data protection compliant product or service.
