EU-US Data Privacy Framework (EU-US DPF)

Personal data may be transferred from the European Union/UK/Switzerland to the United States (U.S.). The E.U-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (EU-U.S. DPF) has been determined as ‘adequate’ by the European Commission which means that personal data can be transferred to organizations in the U.S. who have signed up to the EU-U.S. DPF without the need for any further safeguards to be in place.

Cogniac complies with the EU-U.S. DPF, the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (Swiss-U.S. DPF) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce.  

Cogniac has certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that it adheres to the EU-U.S. DPF Principles with regard to the processing of personal data received from the European Union in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and from the United Kingdom (and Gibraltar) in reliance on the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF.  Cogniac has certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework Principles (Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles) with regard to the processing of personal data received from Switzerland in reliance on the Swiss-U.S. DPF.  If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and/or the Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles, the Principles shall govern.  To learn more about the Data Privacy Framework (DPF) program, and to view our certification, please visit

Transfers to third parties/controllers/processors

Cogniac has set out above where we may transfer personal data to third party controllers and processors. In those cases we ensure that there is a contract in place that sets out that personal data may only be processed for limited and specified purposes and that the recipient will provide the same level of protection as the DPF Principles and that they will notify Cogniac if it can no longer meet that obligation. Cogniac remains liable under the DPF Principles if the receiving organization (processor/agent) processes in a manner which is inconsistent with the DPF Principles unless that organization can prove that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

We may need to disclose your personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

If your complaint is not resolved after following the recourse mechanisms described above, you may have the ability to invoke binding arbitration.  Additional information is available here for EU/EEA and UK (and Gibraltar) individuals and here for Swiss individuals.
