Agora Opinion’s GDPR Commitment
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in effect, and Agora Opinion is here to support you in meeting its requirements.
What Is GDPR?
GDPR is coming into effect on May 25, 2018. This regulation will set a new standard for how organizations collect, use, and protect EU citizens’ personal information. With the growing concern for data safety, this law is designed to restore the confidence of the public.
GDPR Implications For Your Organization
Whether or not your organization is based in the EU, all business that control or process personal information of EU citizens have to do so in accordance with the GDPR requirements.
As an employer, this means that you are responsible for ensuring that the personal information of your EU citizen employees is processed in accordance with the GDPR requirements.
Because of this, you are also responsible for ensuring that any workplace service providers that you use will process the personal information of your EU citizen employees in accordance with the GDPR requirements.
Agora Opinion’s Commitment Of Support In Your Organization’s GDPR Compliance
Agora Opinion is committed to supporting you in ensuring that your use of our workplace equipment meets the GDPR requirements.
Here are some of the measures that Agora Opinion has put in place to reflect that:
Agora Opinion’s Contractual Terms Reflect GDPR Requirements
Agora Opinion has prepared a Data Processing Addendum that contains the GDPR contractual requirements. Where applicable, this Data Processing Addendum is incorporated into our Terms of Service, available at https://www.agoraopinion.com/cgv.Our contractual commitments relevant to GDPR are that:
- Agora Opinion will be transparent and never use your customers’ and employees’ personal information other than as instructed by you,
- Agora Opinion will maintain appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your customers’ and employees’ personal information,
- Agora Opinion will assist you with requests from your employees regarding their personal information that is processed using our services.
Agora Opinion Will Continue To Improve Its Security Infrastructures

Our commitments to maintaining our security measures are as follows:
- Agora Opinion ensures that, to the extent possible, your employees’ personal information is pseudonymized,
- Agora Opinion ensures that your employees’ personal information is encrypted, both in transit and at rest,

- For more details regarding Agora Opinion’s commitment to invest in its security infrastructures, we invite you to read our Data Processing Addendum.
Agora Opinion Complies With GDPR International Data Transfer Mechanisms
GDPR does not require personal information of EU citizens to be stored in the EU. GDPR does, however, require transfers of EU citizens’ personal information outside of the EU to comply with certain international data transfer standards. One of these standards is that prior to transferring an EU citizen’s personal information to a third country, the European Commission must have decided that the third country ensures an adequate level of protection.
Agora Opinion is committed to ensuring that all transfers of your customers’ and employees’ personal information are and will be in compliance with the required international data transfer standards.
As your data processor, Agora Opinion transfers your customers’ and employees’ personal information to only two third-party subprocessors : our data center provider and our database service management provider. Both of these subprocessors are certified under the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield, a framework negotiated and agreed upon by the European Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce as a lawful way of transferring personal data.
Agora Opinion’s Products Are Designed To Help You Meet Your GDPR Requirements
Agora Opinion is committed to making every effort to build product features that help you meet your GDPR requirements.
Agora Opinion ensures that you can meet the GDPR data portability requirements by providing, among others, features that permit you to export some of the employees’ personal information.
Agora Opinion is here for you. Please contact our customer support team if you have any GDPR-specific questions.
