Where is customer data located?

When data is stored overseas, it becomes subject to data sovereignty. This means that wherever your data is being stored, it is subject to the laws of the country in which the data resides. These laws affect data protection and cyber security, as well as privacy regulations. This becomes a problem if the country where your data is stored has low privacy regulations as well as foreign countries being able to subpoena data.
