The website of the EU Clearing House in the USA will not share data with third parties
If you are an EU data subject, your privacy is very important to us. We do not sell goods or monitor the behavior of EU citizens, but we do work with Participating Institutions and organizations that collect and store personal data. Our data protection policy is similar to that of the EU. Our policy only covers the personal information that we process. The privacy and security policies of Clearinghouse are consistent with FERPA. There are no exceptions.
The Clearinghouse’s website is based in the United States. If you live outside the U.S., you should ensure that your Clearinghouse contracting firm is GDPR compliant. If your contract does not specify how it will handle your data, it will comply with the GDPR. The data you provide will only be used for the purpose for which it was originally collected. Your data will not be sold to third parties.
