Baxter and the E.U.-U.S. Safe Harbor for Privacy

The U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission have developed a "safe harbor" framework of data protection principles ("Safe Harbor"). This framework is designed to provide U.S. organizations with a means to satisfy the European Union's legal requirement that adequate data protections be afforded to personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States. Baxter's Global Privacy Policy is consistent with the safe harbor principles and Baxter has specifically certified that its transfers of manual and electronic data from European Union to the United States adhere to the Safe Harbor principles.
