As an election organizer, do I need a data processing agreement?

Yes, a data processing agreement is necessary, as personal data of your eligible voters is exchanged with POLYAS in the course of each election project. This includes data in the electoral register and the content of ballot papers. POLYAS has developed a standard reference for this, which is valid without a signature.

You can find the agreement along with our Terms and Conditions, available for download here:
