Most of the big cloud storage players in the world are U.S.-based. You may think that your files are safe and private when stored with the big guys. Well, you may be wrong.
Yes, some of these companies have a local subsidiary that store data in European datacenters, but the problem is this:
U.S. law enforcement could use the USA PATRIOT Act on a U.S.-based organisation, like Microsoft, Google, Dropbox or Amazon, for example, to force its local subsidiary companies across the world into handing over user data to U.S. authorities.
Jottacloud is a Norwegian company with Norwegian owners, and we operate under Norwegian privacy laws. We store all your files in Norway.
As a result, our users are protected against U.S. legislation, which arguably infringe the freedom and liberties of both U.S and non-U.S. citizens.
That makes Jottacloud great for people who want an alternative to U.S. based cloud services like SkyDrive, Dropbox and iCloud.
With our unique position, located in Norway, we are now issuing a guarantee for your privacy. Starting today, this is our Privacy Guarantee:
It’s your stuff and it’s safe! Jottacloud guarantees it! And our servers are powered by green energy – Jottacloud guarantees that as well. Be safe!
