On May 25th, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulation will enter into effect in the European Union and it will have a fundamental impact on how organizations treat data from individuals in compliance with the new privacy laws. In short, it means every organization that collects data of any kind must implement a data protocol or risk being fined 4% of total revenue or $20 Million dollars, whichever is higher.
Online surveys, which are at the forefront of any consumer, market or employee data collection, also need to be made compliant with the updated regulations. In order to make it easier for QuestionPro? survey software users to create and send GDPR compliant data collection surveys, we have put in place a sophisticated process to ensure all data being collected using our platform is fully GDPR compliant.
GDPR regulations require that each company outline its own data retention policy, and more specifically, how long is data retained for. Look for more information on GDPR Surveys
