Safe Harbor

“Safe harbor” is a provision of a statute or a regulation that reduces or eliminates a party’s liability under the law, on the condition that the party performed its actions in good faith. Safe-harbor provisions are written into laws to protect legitimate or excusable violations. Corporations publish safe-harbor statements to demonstrate that they are performing whatever due diligence is required in order to take advantage of applicable legal safe harbors. Safe harbor provides a framework for U.S. companies with E.U. subsidiaries to meet privacy standards pertaining to the exchange of personal information. The right to data privacy is heavily regulated and rigidly enforced in Europe.
