You are responsible for protecting personal data
you have collected using EasyPolls. If any of the poll voters who
responds to your surveys are citizens of the EU, you are also subject to the
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective on May 25th 2018. Make
sure you implement proper security measures, manual routines and policies
to protect all personal data. In GDPR terms, you are
the Data Controller, and we (as the hosting company) are the Data Processor.
Personal information collected from voters: IP address, and possibly the choice selected on the poll itself. The IP
address is only collected on a small subset of the polls, when premium (paid) features are enabled. The poll
creator only sees a very small subset of the IP addresses.
As Data Processor, we
- make sure that no transfer of data to other countries will
take place, except to Norway (member of the European Economic Area) when
support is needed. Our support personnel is located in Oslo, Norway and
must transfer some data related to the support case when the need
arises. The EasyPolls service is currently physically located in Virginia, USA.
- make sure all personnel authorized to process personal data have committed
themselves to our confidentiality agreement for data protection
- we treat all data collected by you as confidential information, and will not
disclose the data to any third party except upon instructions from
you or required by law.
- have taken necessary security measures to secure data collected
by users of the service.
- update the software in a timely manner to eliminate security vulnerabilities
when they are discovered.
- will assist you as much as we can, within reason, to help you fulfill your
obligations as the Data Controller with respect to the GDPR regulation.
- will make sure our services are GDPR compliant on a continuous basis from a
Data Processor's perspective.
As a Data Controller, you must
- make sure you understand your obligations as a Data Controller of the data
you are collecting, and
- take the required actions to meet those obligations
- Be mindful that when using premium features that collects personal information
(IP address) using premium features like Location Tracking and IP filtering, the data is
stored in the USA, and not within the EU. This is relevant if your voters are EU citizens.
Our services run on the Amazon AWS platform, which is fully GDPR compliant. For
