Meta Platforms, Inc. (“Meta”) has certified our participation in the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (collectively, the "DPF") with the U.S. Department of Commerce. This certification relates to Meta’s processing of personal information received from the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and Switzerland under the DPF in connection with our certification. If there is any conflict between the terms in this Disclosure and the DPF Principles, the Principles shall govern. To learn more about the DPF, or to review our certification on the DPF list, visit the DPF website. The Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework will not be relied upon in relation to transfers of any relevant personal information to the U.S. from Switzerland until the date of entry into force of Switzerland’s recognition of adequacy (i.e., entry into force of the expected recognition by the Swiss Federal Administration that the Swiss-U.S. DPF ensures data protection consistent with Swiss law).
