Information for editors

On May 25, 2018, a new Data Protection Regulation (GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation) will be in force. GDPR is a set of regulations designed to protect the personal data of EU residents and enforce data privacy rules. It also shows how organisations collect, store and use personal information.

1KA is an open source application that supports and combines all the stages of the data collection process through online surveying. In this context, a registered user 1KA, who is the author of a particular survey (and related data), plays the role of a controller, and the 1KA application has the role of a processor. The editor or survey author is the owner of the survey, which is responsible for all information and data generated and collected using the 1KA tool. At the same time, he is also responsible for the fulfilment of all the requests made by respondents for his surveys (request for deletion, access, modification or personal or survey data).

Accordingly, the latest upgrade of the 1KA application brings many innovations that allow survey authors to conduct a survey in accordance with the regulations and requirements of the new regulation.

From the perspective of the author of the survey, he has the following options as an editor:

  • The GDPR profile settings, where the editor can edit his GDPR profile, monitors the list of his surveys that are potentially bound to GDPR and processes request for deletion, alteration or insight into the survey data provided by respondents for his surveys. More >>
  • GDPR survey settings, where the editor can additionally regulate the GDPR settings for a particular survey (determine which personal data he collects, choose a template for the consent to collect personal data, edit details about collecting personal data (information for respondents)). More >>
