Polar, which offered an online polling solution, is being acquired by Google. Polar announced the news on its website, and it was first reported by Re/code.

A message on the Polar site says:

Polar started with the simple idea that everyone has an opinion worth hearing. Since then one in every 449 Internet users told us what their opinion was by voting on a Polar poll. Our deepest thanks go out to each and every one of you.

To help our existing customers with this transition, we’re keeping our publisher tools available until the end of 2014. We’ve also built a simple way to download and save an archive of your Polar polls and data —they’re yours after all!

The company also notes that it is joining the Google+ team, and is bringing its "sensibilities" along with it.

Terms were not disclosed.
