We only work with the best

All of our subcontractors are GDPR-compliant, and you have control over certain functionalities provided by Peakon and its processors, allowing you to store employee data solely within the EEA if required.

Data processing agreement

We will state the obligations of Peakon (the Data Processor) and yourselves (the Data Controller). Along with our Terms and Conditions, this will form the contractual basis of GDPR compliance and the instructions under which we will process and protect your data.

You're in control

Peakon has designed our Platform and Data Processing Agreement to give you options and allow you to have full control. The powerful settings in Peakon empower you to control who can see and manage sensitive information. Also, we ensure that you can communicate to your employees that they are always in control of their personal data and we will support you in these efforts.

Your access-control capabilities and your anonymity and aggregation settings, as well as all the resources that we make available to ensure your employees' awareness and understanding, help to build the necessary trust that makes us your valued partner.

Powerful access control

Access Control Groups give you complete control of who can see, edit, and delete employee data. Read more about it here.

Employees in control of their own data

Employees have the right to request that their personal data is removed and deleted from the dashboard. They can also ask to reset their answers and, if enabled by your organization, update their details on attributes as per GDPR Article 16.
