It is often believed that if servers are located in Europe, your data is protected under the GDPR. This is an important but not a sufficient condition.
We review all the issues of data sovereignty in a comprehensive ebook.
According to a July 2022 Senate report, about 80% of French citizens’ and businesses’ data is stored on servers subject to the extraterritorial legislation of the CLOUD Act. It’s not just messaging, storage in drives, or social media.
As far as this data is concerned, the general public is more or less aware that it is being handed over to GAFAM, and that it is losing the protection of the General Data Protection Regulation at the same time.
It also includes data that is translated online for free, for example, using Google Translate or DeepL in the course of its work.
Our ebook will help you to understand the risks to which you are exposed when translating your data online and will above all give you solutions to protect your translated data and guarantee its sovereignty!
Extraterritoriality of US laws: your data subject to conditions
The CLOUD Act and the USA PATRIOT Act are two pieces of U.S. legislation that allow U.S. authorities access to data from all U.S. companies and certain French companies — if they have their servers on U.S. soil. This is the principle of extraterritoriality.
Is the company that hosts your data American? Your data is therefore subject to the CLOUD Act, even if the servers are “Europeanized” or located in Europe.
You will learn from our ebook that the problem of extraterritoriality of US legislation is a complex one.
Rest assured, there are solutions to translate your data via a trusted cloud. We give you all the keys to the problem in our ebook.
