All AreSocial data is held on servers hosted in the 🇪🇺 European Union. Our Messaging data is stored in 🇳🇱 The Netherlands, UK and our Plugin data is stored in 🇩🇪 Germany. Servers are hosted by DigitalOcean (an US-based company, with a subsidiary in the EU subject to EU law).
We use relay servers outside EU to reduce latency, which do not store any data except connection logs (IP address, date of connection, user-agent and source website). Those relay servers are hosted in 🇺🇸 The United States of America, 🇨🇦 Canada and 🇸🇬 Singapore. We do not plan to store data outside the EU in the future.
