COMPLIANCE

Where your data is stored has become a really important topic, especially when dealing with GDPR and the uncertainty of Brexit – for most businesses operating out of the UK, to ensure that we’re being compliant, we need to be sure that our data is held somewhere that complies with these GDPR Regulations.

Even in the post Brexit world – the UK is planning to follow with the previously implemented GDPR regulations.

So naturally, a lot of people have started to wonder “Where does Zoho Store Your Data?”
