Yes! Canny is fully committed to upholding compliance with GDPR.

What is GDPR?   

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new comprehensive data protection law that has been in effect since May 25, 2018. It replaced the prior EU Data Protection law to strengthen the protection of “personal data” and the rights of the individual. It is a single set of rules which govern the processing and monitoring of EU data.

GDPR Compliance Questions

What personal data is collected?

  • Your team member names and email addresses.

  • Your customer data includes, but is not limited to, names, email addresses.

Where is data stored and processed?

All data is stored in the United States (with MongoDB Atlas on AWS) and processed with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

It is a common misconception that EU data residency is a requirement of GDPR, but rest assured, we work with multiple EU companies and all data is handled in compliance.

Our DPA includes the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC), which are accepted as an appropriate safeguard for personal data transfers to non-EEA countries. You can see this same information stated on many websites hosted by legal/data privacy experts, including the official website of the EU.

Do you enter into Data Processing Agreements (DPA)?

Yes. We do offer a standard DPA here at Canny and would be happy to countersign via DocuSign. If you prefer a customized DPA, that does require legal review. Please reach out and start a chat for further details.
