)-- Mail2World, Inc., a global provider of advanced outsourced messaging and collaboration solutions, today announced its messaging and collaboration services have been formally certified by TRUSTe® as EU Safe Harbor Compliant. The TRUSTe® EU Safe Harbor Privacy Seal Program helps U.S.-based companies conducting online transactions with European Union companies and citizens comply with the Safe Harbor Privacy Framework set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Mail2World initiated the voluntary certification process after partnering with European reseller Bankoi, a leading Web portal specializing in global support services for IT professionals and small to medium-sized companies.
"Our goal is to assure our European customers that Mail2World is the most trustworthy global messaging and collaboration provider," states Youssef Abed, Mail2World's Executive Vice President and COO. "By incorporating the Safe Harbor Framework into Mail2World's service privacy policies, we're reinforcing our commitment to building trusting relationships while adding another layer of privacy assurance to our already stringent standards."
"Mail2World is a trusted global brand, and the Safe Harbor Seal allows us to communicate our privacy protection practices and resolve disputes in a way that recognizes language differences and cultural sensitivities," explains Brian R. Schmidt, Vice President of Business Development at Mail2World. "Mail2World offers features specifically for global users, such as instant email translation, multilingual control panels and virtual keyboards. These features, plus Safe Harbor certification, open the way for EU businesses and consumers to take advantage of our sophisticated yet affordable messaging technology."
With offices in Spain and Germany, Bankoi is the first European reseller to leverage Mail2World's Safe Harbor status. "We're impressed with Mail2World's dedication to the European market," declares Josep Pocalles, Director of Bankoi.
