    If you are European Union based with European costumers, yes you should migrate. Because European Union laws state that the personal information from European users should never leave EU. But if you are an outside EU company with EU users, even if you migrate you will still be violating the EU privacy law as you will be accessing the information outside EU:

    "Note that a EU Safe Form is only safe if you are a Jotform user in Europe. If you are a US company collecting data in Europe, you are still violating EU privacy laws when you access the data from US. The EU Data Protection Directive allows a data transfer if the data subject unambiguously consents to the transfer. So you must unambiguously state in your form that the data will be transferred to US and get agreement from the user with a terms checkbox or a terms widget. "

    Let us know if we can assist you further.
