Audio Resonance Therapy uses SendGrid’s services to send various email notifications. The provider is SendGrid Inc., 1801 California Street, Suite 500, Denver, CO 80202
Sendgrid is a service with which emails can be sent and analyzed according to the highest security standards.
SendGrid is certified according to the “EU-US Privacy Shield”. The “Privacy Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA, which is intended to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA. You can find further information on SendGrid certification here: SendGrid Privacy Shield certification
UPDATE: Please note on July 16, 2020, the European Court of Justice ruled that the US-EU Privacy Shield is no longer a valid cross-border data transfer mechanism. However, the same ruling upheld Standard Contractual Clauses as a valid cross-border data transfer mechanism. Customers aren’t required to do anything in order to be covered by the Standard Contractual Clauses as they are already part of the Data Protection Addendum which covers all SendGrid and Twilio services by default. Please see our blog post if you’d like to learn more.
Organizations are only allowed to transfer personal data outside of the European Economic Area if they have in place appropriate safeguards to protect personal data abroad. Accepted transfer mechanisms include self-certifying to the Privacy Shield Framework (if a US organization), using the EU Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, transferring the data to a country that has been recognized by the European Commission as providing an “adequate” level of data protection, obtaining Binding Corporate Rules approval, as well as other less established mechanisms such as certifications and codes of conduct.
Data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time by contacting us or following the “Unsubscribe”-link in the email footer. The legality of the data processing that has already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
