CASRO is pleased to offer the CASRO Privacy Shield Program in collaboration with the Council of Better Business Bureaus.

Please note that the CASRO Privacy Shield Program does not offer dispute resolution services for issues relating to the transfer of a company's own human resources data. However, such transfers are covered under the Privacy Shield – please refer to the Department of Commerce’s FAQ for more information.

Step 1

Complete the CASRO Privacy Shield Program application.

Step 2

Create or modify your privacy notice and internal privacy policy to conform to the seven Privacy Shield Principles.  Your privacy notice must specifically reference your organization’s adherence to the Privacy Shield Principles and must be made available to the public on your public website.  You must reference your participation in CASRO Privacy Shield and provide our program contact information for complaints. Visit the Commerce Department’s Privacy Shield website for additional information about Privacy Shield and the self-certification process.

Step 3

Review and sign the Participation Agreement (the CBBB Independent Complaint Handling Agreement is annexed to the Participation Agreement and is a second
required signature). Mail your signed Participation Agreement and a copy of your company’s draft privacy policy to the address provided. Your application will be reviewed upon receipt. If any additional information is required we will contact you. Please note that your privacy policy must meet the minimum requirements set out in Step 2 before we can accept your application. Once the review process is complete you will receive an email notification indicating that your company has been accepted into the program.

Step 4

Self-certify with the Department of Commerce within 30 days of our approval of your application.Your self-certification to Privacy Shield must be current in order to continue your participation in the CASRO Privacy Shield program.Please review the Commerce Department’s self certification guide here for the information you will need for self-certification.
