    We would like to know if you have planned to join the privacy shield agreement (www.privacyshield.gov) in a short term.

    Hey there @Jokin,

    I talked this with our managers and it looks like, while not having a specific date, we are planning on joining Privacy Shield Agreement in 2017.

    Hi Scott, thanks for your answer to Jokin

    without Privacy Shield, would you consider Jotform as suitable for EU based companies to gather information on clients?

    Obviously its a great platform, just need to understand more about the compliance side.
