The DMA Safe Harbor Program

Welcome to the DMA Safe Harbor Program Home Page. As you may know, the United States and European Union (EU) have negotiated a Safe Harbor framework that allows US companies to import personal information from Europe. In addition, the US and Switzerland have negotiated a Safe Harbor framework that allows US companies to import personal information from Switzerland. As part of the Safe Harbor framework companies must subscribe to an outside, third-party dispute resolution mechanism that will address any unresolved European or Swiss data privacy complaints.

The DMA has developed the DMA Safe Harbor Program to assist those DMA member companies that wish to comply with the Safe Harbor enforcement requirements by providing an independent third-party dispute resolution mechanism. The DMA has also developed educational materials for companies and consumers interested in finding out more about the Safe Harbor framework and the DMA Safe Harbor Program.

The DMA is pleased to offer this program to DMA members at:

    Annual Safe Harbor Contract Fee:
  • $3,500 fee, for companies with annual revenue over $150 million
  • $2,000 fee, for companies with annual revenue between $51 million and $150 million
  • $1,000 fee, for companies with annual revenue between $21 million and $50 million
  • $700 fee, for companies with annual revenue between $5 million and $20 million
  • $300 fee, for companies with annual revenue under $5 million
