    We need the data collected via a form to be stored on computers in the uk only. It is a legal requirement for some of our partners. Do you have servers in the uk or how can we send the data to independent servers?

    You are wondering where the data is stored.

    We have many servers that span the globe because of the cloud-based technology that we use. The easiest way to tell which servers your data is stored on is to open up one of your jotforms with the preview link and look at the server it shows. It depends on your location and your plan level mostly.


    http://www.jotformeu.com/form/43243069605352  - Yours says "jotformeu" in your jotform link because you're located in the uk so that is where your data is stored as well is a server in Europe.

    If it's in the US it would be http://www.jotform.us/xxxxxxxxxx as another example.

    If you are a subscriber then you will likely be using http://www.jotformpro.com server.

    Additionally, I also meant to point out usually our server will detect your location and attempt to push you to the closest server near you.

    However, you can manually try to change it but you may experience slight problems with access and other random issues because of it. Some of our users use proxies and vpns to access other locations although we recommend using the closest servers near you to avoid complications.
