You've probably heard about the debate regarding the storage of sensitive files in cloud services located outside Sweden. But do you need to take into account GDPR, Cloud ACT, Schrems II etc as a private person? The answer is really no, as most of these regulations are there for companies to protect the privacy and data of private individuals. What you should be careful of as a private individual is to use cloud services that comply with these regulations. Therefore, it is reassuring to know that Storegate is a Swedish company that complies with GDPR and Swedish legislation. No picture or file that you store in the cloud will be accessible by anyone other than yourself or the family members with whom you share your lovely albums. The fact that we also have Swedish support doesn't make things any worse.
