Adoption of the Privacy Shield Framework demonstrates LeadGnome’s commitment to data privacy and business transparency.

BOSTON, MA – LeadGnome, a web-based platform that automatically extracts Account Based Intelligence from campaign reply emails, announced the company achieved EU-U.S. Privacy Shield certification with the U.S. Department of Commerce. In order to achieve the certification, LeadGnome verified that their data privacy management practices met the requirements of the new Privacy Shield EU data transfer framework.

“LeadGnome is committed to data privacy and business transparency. We had already employed many of the required best practices, so the certification process was completed significantly ahead of schedule,” said Matt Benati, Founder and CEO of LeadGnome.

The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission to provide a legal transfer mechanism for the transfer of personal data from the European Union to the United States. Administered by the International Trade Administration (ITA) within the U.S. Department of Commerce, the framework ensures certified U.S. based organizations are meeting the highest levels of data privacy protection.

LeadGnome’s sophisticated platform uses web-based technology to mine email replies for Fresh data and Account Based Intelligence. The platform is included in many martech stacks because it integrates with popular marketing automation and CRM platforms like Salesforce, HubSpot, Marketo and Oracle Cloud.
