At MakeForms, we are committed to ensuring the protection and privacy of our users’ personal data. To this end, we are fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the EU regulation that sets a high bar for data protection and privacy. Here are the key aspects of our GDPR compliance:
The GDPR is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). The regulation came into effect on May 25, 2018, and imposes strict rules on organizations that collect, store, and process personal data, with the aim of protecting the privacy and rights of individuals.
Why is GDPR Compliance Important?
GDPR compliance is important for several reasons:
GDPR helps to ensure that individuals have control over their personal data and are aware of how it is being collected, processed, and stored.
By being GDPR compliant, we demonstrate our commitment to protecting the personal data of our users, which helps to build trust with them.
Non-compliance with GDPR can result in significant penalties, including fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is greater.
At MakeForms, we take GDPR compliance seriously, and we are committed to protecting our users’ personal data. Here are the key aspects of our GDPR compliance:
Our servers are hosted in the EU to ensure that all the data we collect is stored within the EU. Additionally, all our data subprocessors, including Vultr, AWS, and MongoDB, are GDPR-compliant and use EU-based servers to store data.
We have appointed an EU-based GDPR representative to ensure compliance with GDPR regulations and to act as a point of contact for our users.
We have completed a thorough GDPR assessment to ensure compliance with all GDPR requirements. Our users can request the assessment report to review the measures we have taken to protect their personal data by filling this form.
We offer a Data Protection Addendum (DPA) to our users who need to establish GDPR compliance for their businesses.Our DPA is a legally binding agreement that outlines the specific measures we have taken to protect our users’ personal data and ensure compliance with GDPR regulations. It also includes provisions for data processing, data retention, and data security.
By signing our DPA, our users can establish that they are using a GDPR compliant form builder tool, which can be showcased to their auditors and customers as proof of their commitment to data protection.
If you need a DPA for your business, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we would be happy to provide you with more information and assistance.
