Isle of Man – Netcetera, a leading European Cloud Hosting Provider and champion of carbon neutral hosting solutions, based on the Isle Of Man, is pleased to announce compliance with the new CISPE Code Of Conduct, joining a select group of Cloud Service Providers across Europe who have declared to provide their clients with the choice to store and process their data within the European Economic Area. Netcetera is the first Cloud Provider from the UK and first from the Isle Of Man to achieve this new compliance mark.

Netcetera’s CEO Peter Skelton stated, “It is very pleasing to be the first Cloud Service Provider in the UK to guarantee that our client’s data will be held in compliance with the new European Data Regulations due to be enforced in May 2018. By agreeing to adhere to the CISPE Code Of Conduct, it clearly demonstrates our determination to offer the highest standards of transparency and security for data hosted by clients on our Carbon Neutral Enterprise Cloud. We would encourage more Cloud providers to follow our example, the more service providers that achieve the compliance mark, the easier it will be for potential customers to recognise the Cloud Providers that can be trusted to uphold the highest standards in data protection.”

Only Cloud Service Providers that adhere to the new European Standards will be entitled to display this new mark of compliance. This new standard will guarantee that Netcetera will not access or use their client’s data for their own purposes, for data mining operations, data profiling or direct marketing.

Francisco Mingorance, CISPE Secretary General & Counselor said, “CISPE welcomes Netcetera’s declaration of adherence under the CISPE Data Protection Code Of Conduct. Netcetera is the first UK-Cloud Service Provider to declare its cloud services under the CISPE Code Of Conduct ahead of the application of the new European Data Regulations in May 2018.”

The new Code Of Conduct can be used by customers seeking a provider offering Cloud Computing Solutions, as a reference to establish whether a Cloud Service appropriately and transparently protects the data they want to keep. This new Code Of Conduct will bring benefits to both customers as well as service providers.

Netcetera’s latest achievement was also praised by the Isle of Man’s Information Commissioner, Mr Iain McDonald, who stated, “The Cloud Infrastructure Service Providers in Europe (CISPE) were among the first to produce a code of practice for compliance with the new stricter requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). I am pleased to learn that Netcetera has publicly committed to adhering to this code of practice and in doing so has become the first Isle of Man based data controller to do so.”

With the new European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect on the 25th May 2018, Netcetera has anticipated any changes this will bring and has already started to create awareness and promote the benefits of choosing to host with a Cloud Provider who is committed to the transparency, security of data and the freedom of choice guaranteed through compliance with CISPE Code Of Conduct.
