Are all clients bound by US law, even for Amsterdam DataCenter?

  • Posted October 22, 2013

In the UK we have laws about transfer of personal data outside EEA. Then there’s the NSA to keep in mind, too.

Am I right in understanding that because DigitalOcean are a US based company, US law applies to all activities of non-US customers using resources in a non-US datacenter?
