Welcome to Data-Jurisdiction.org

Increasingly, the internet is becoming fragmented and balkanised, with wildly different data protection laws in each country.

When communicating with someone, it is becoming vitally important to know where in the world they are (and where their data is stored) in order to know whether your conversation will remain private and your data kept safe.

Data-Jurisdiction.org is a community project which will attempt to catalogue the risks in each country, in plain English.

You seem to be visiting from United States, see which laws apply or get involved...
