Personal data protection ?.

Hello,

 

I am in the process of setting a shop up. Before that, and to comply with my country's regulation on personal data protection, I'd need to confirm a couple of things. If I understand it correctly, shopify is incorporated in Canada. As such, it is considered adequate [1] to store my customer's personal data. However, I would need to know whether the servers are actually in Canada or, perhaps, in the US. If they were in the US, the hosting company would need to comply with the Safe Harbor principles in regards to personal data protection. So, my question is, where are the servers located? Whois reports they might be in Texas, but just to be sure, I thought I would ask.

 

thanks
