Online elections conducted with POLYAS are by default hosted in data centers in the EU and in compliance with GDPR.
Our Self-Service has the option to book hosting on the Open Telekom Cloud (OTC). The OTC platform is operated exclusively in the German data centers of the Telekom AG. OTC (and T-Systems as the provider) have a large number of certificates that prove that the processing of data and services is in keeping with data protection regulations. For further information see https://open-telekom-cloud.com/en.
Individual voting projects that are managed using POLYAS Election Management are hosted on the OTC by default.
When conducting test voting in POLYAS Live Voting, the test voting is started using the servers of the Azure Cloud/EU West. Further information on this is available here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/.
