GDPR

The new GDPR rules came into force on 25 May 2018.

Under this new regulation, if you want to contact people on your database you may need their consent - they must "opt in" for you to be allowed to continue to contact them.

To send a short form asking for permission just click on the "Order" button below.

This will create an account for your which will allow you to send out the form to your address lists or databases, asking for permission. You can send the email to as many people as you like via Survey Mechanics.

You will be able to download all the responses you receive in a simple spreadsheet, showing you who has given their permission, how they want to be contacted, and what about.

You can have all this up and running in a few minutes. There is a form already prepared, which you can edit as necessary, adding your own logo and specific details.

The service is only £195 (plus VAT) and you can keep it running for up to a year. If you subsequently decide to use Survey Mechanics for valuable research with your customers, potential customers, ex-customers or anyone else, we will credit this fee toward your (already very affordable) licence.

You will then be taken to a page where you can order your GDPR survey - it will be ready in a few minutes.

Data security post Brexit

Whether the UK leaves the EU with or without a deal, the future for data transfer in and out of the UK is uncertain. The UK government has said it will allow the unrestricted transfer of data from the UK to the EU, but there is no arrangement in place guaranteeing the transfer of data the other way. This means that survey data stored on EU based servers may be unavailable in the UK.

Also, the current arrangements for secure data transfer between the US and the EU will not apply to the UK after Brexit.

Survey Mechanics has its servers in the UK, and therefore will be unaffected by changes in the rules on data transfer in and out of the UK.
