With multiple survey solutions on the market, concerns around GDPR compliance and where data is stored and accessed, plus the uncertainty Brexit brings, choosing a survey platform can be a daunting task.
We’re here to make your life a little easier. We are 100% UK based and our survey tool is trusted by 260,000+ customers, and by over 500 leading UK brands, government and public sector departments.
100% UK-based alternative to SurveyMonkey
Our Survey software has powerful functionality like SurveyMonkey, providing you with the tools you need to get answers to your questions fast. You’ll be building surveys in an instant using our intuitive survey designer or pick one of our template surveys to start collecting feedback in just a few clicks.
Your data stored in the UK and Ireland
We store all your data in the UK and Ireland (including our backups, unlike many other competitors) to ensure you have peace of mind on where your data is stored. If the Brexit outcome doesn’t allow us to store data in Ireland, we have planned to move everything to the UK, so you won’t have to worry about GDPR, European Privacy Laws or Brexit.

Why is choosing a UK-based alternative important?
When you work with any survey software it’s important you take the time to understand where data is stored and processed from. If a vendor is based in the US, and the software is hosted in Germany, data may be transferred and processed in two different countries! Different countries have different data protection laws and they need to work in compliance with GDPR if processing the data of European Union Citizens as well as UK data laws.
So not only do you need to understand your own country’s data protection laws, you also need to be aware of the data protection practices and trends in the third country that your data is being transferred to. If data protection breaches are rarely addressed and poor enforcement is taken to safeguard data in those third countries, this could mean disaster in terms of damage to your organisation’s reputation and potential fines if something goes wrong. To make matters worse, being smart about data protection has become even harder with uncertainty around Brexit.
