Data in Dropbox is only in datacenters in USA? How it affects the annulment of the safe harbor?

New member | Level 2

The last october, Safe harbor has been annulled by a EU court, so the personal data from my clientes can be transfered out from europe.

Have Dropbox datacenters in europe? CAn I have sure that my data is stored in europe?

Thanks.

Dropbox have said they are currently looking at how the rulings effect things. At present there are no EU data centres. 

Keep an eye on the Dropbox blogs for updates.

Hello,

Have you heard if there's any news on this? We're approaching the legal deadline on 31st January.

I had a check on Dropbox's blog but couldn't see anything recent about this.

Many thanks.

I have to say that for my clients (European Banks) a storage in the US is unacceptable.

It is a shame really that they can't (won't) use Dropbox as their storage management system. Today there is just no trust in the American System when it comes to data security and or misuse of data.

As a DropBox user for many years now, I really hope Dropbox will consider and act quickly as Amazon is taking the market by storm with very competitive prices.
