Data Protection Officer

last updated: July 1, 2019

Overview

SurveyEngine has voluntarily designated a European Union Data Protection Officer (DPO) to be an independent advisor for SurveyEngine’s operations and to help ensure that all proposed processing of personal data meets EU legal requirements and SurveyEngine’s corporate standards. The role was designed to meet the GDPR criteria set out in Articles 37-39.

The Role of the DPO

The DPO is involved, properly and in a timely manner, in all key issues which relate to the protection of personal data.

The DPO works towards compliance with all relevant data protection laws, monitoring specific processes, such as data protection impact assessments (DPIAs), increasing employee awareness for data protection and training them accordingly, as well as collaborating with the supervisory authorities.

A Data Protection Officer may not be dismissed or penalised due to his fulfilment of her tasks.

Despite her monitoring function, the company itself remains responsible for complying with data protection laws. Therefore it has to involve the Data Protection Officer in all issues which relate to the protection of personal data “properly and in a timely manner”.

When a Data Protection Officer is appointed, her superior must publish her contact data, and communicate her appointment and contact data to the data protection supervisory authorities.
