    Hi,

    I have upgraded my account to the Silver Plan because I use medical forms. If I work outside the US, I do not need to upgrade my forms to HIPAA compliant.  Are they automatically GDPR protected? If I choose the option in the Data section "only store in Europe", is there anything else I should do to protect my medical personal information from my clients?

    You can only upgrade to HIPAA if you think it's required for your business. If you're located in EU then your account will be GDPR compliant, you can find more info about it here: https://www.jotform.com/gdpr-compliance/
