Data Processing Agreements, Storage, and Transfers (EU)

It's our priority to protect your privacy and handle your data securely. If you are located in the European Union (EU), United Kingdom (UK), or Switzerland, we generally provide services from our subsidiary in Ireland, Momentive Europe UC. This subsidiary is regulated under European data protection laws and supervised by the Irish data protection authority.

TIP! For more about data transfers to the United States, see our EU Data Transfer and Subprocessor List.

As a global company, Momentive has data centers in the United States (US), Ireland, and Canada. Most European customer data is stored on servers in the US, as outlined in our Privacy Notice and white paper. Some plans allow storage of data within the European Union,  as outlined in our International Data Center Overview page.

We rely on intra-company agreements including standard contractual clauses to transfer your personal data to our servers in the US maintained by our US parent company, Momentive Inc.

We provide customer support services from our US, European, Australian, and Canadian offices to ensure around-the-clock coverage. Some data may be exported or accessed to provide support from outside of Europe.

Momentive was certified under and complies with both the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield programs, which legalized the collection, use, transfer, and retention of personal data from Europe to the US. This method for transfer of personal data has been invalidated by the European courts and so we now direct our customers to our Data Processing Agreements (DPA) with SCCs section below.

Momentive offers a Data Processing Agreement (DPA), which includes the most recent EU approved Standard Contractual Clauses/Model Clauses referred to in the GDPR for all customers.

Our DPA is available in our legal center. If you're a self-serve user of SurveyMonkey or Wufoo, this DPA is automatically incorporated into your Terms of Use. Enterprise customers, please speak to your customer success manager for information on your contractual processing terms with Momentive.

Customer data for SurveyMonkey Apply (formerly known as FluidReview) is stored on servers located in Canada or the US. Apply customers should be aware that for certain reasons their data may still be accessed in the US. For example, we provide customer support and billing support from our US offices.

With the exception of Apply, the information provided on this page applies to all other Momentive products, like Wufoo and TechValidate.
