The data processing will mainly take place in the United Kingdom and EU. However some data processing may occur in the United States as this is where the cloud servers of some of our data processors are located. There is also a slight risk that processing occurs in other non-EU countries if an email or DropBox account is accessed there. However, the IWGB discourages this as a matter of policy.
