European Hosting to comply with GDPR

I have several clients in Europe (germany and switzerland) and I love Webflow, but they are all very concerned with data privacy and complying to GDPR. Especially now with the current privacy shield solutions. Please, please work on an European hosting so you don't loose valuable customers. I see this issue popping up on so many webflow groups (facebook). More and more freelancers as well as agencies are moving back to WordPress bc of that significant issue.

    Cloudways is a GDPR compliant managed hosting service provider based in Europe. It is known for providing customers with convenient hosting solutions while keeping their websites secure at all times. ... Cloudways does not collect any data without customer consent.

    This is still a very very important topic! The whole European Market needs a solution that complies with GDPR.

    Now that I'm reading all the comments, I'm worried that my plan & promise to do a redesign for a client in Germany will fail because Webflow isn't suitable for a german website... Although I'm not yet sure how problematic it all is, webflow should certainly take care of it!

    Dear Webflow Team,

    the GDPR is a really important topic for my European customers.
    Is there a possibilty to give us designers and developers a solution that is GDPR certified. Maybe an option in the settings to host only on CDN servers in Europe or make it more transparent, which CDN servers and CDN companies are used.

    At the moment I find it quite hard to give my clients good arguments for Webflow, when they want to know where there data is going.

    I know you already make it possible to sign a DPA with Webflow, but it would be perfect if we can sign a DPA with Webflow, that also contains the CDN Networks you are using.

    I hope I could give you some inspiration for a solution.
    I really love your software and I hope, that you find a solution, that I can work with Webflow in the future.

    Kind regards from Germany,

    The goal of GDPR is to protect users' personally identifiable information (PII) and help businesses reach a higher standard when it comes to how they collect, store and use this cookie clicker data.

    Screw you webflow with your pathetic support and your lack of engagement with the community regards to features and updates on serious issues. I pay $888/year to host with Webflow and rest assured I'll be moving to a different platform when I'm due to renewal.

    Hey guys, this is quite a serious topic right now because and especially of GDPR. The other day I read Microsoft is building data centers in Europe to comply fully with GDPR.

    Not sure whether the Webflow team is planning to do anything about this, but it is quite serious and lots of people could get into troubles.

    Is there any way to sort this kind of things? Or any explanation or suggestion on how to possibly sort this "problem" out?

    Thank you guys for any answer and solution.

    Can we add California CCPA while we're at it?

    Seems like a great plugin opportunity... we should open source a github project to tackle this.

    This is definitely something that needs to be prioritised on the Webflow platform.

    It's a massive consideration for GDPR, SEO and site performance (to non-US visitors).

    This would be a really great solution and would be such a helpful tool to have. However, in the meantime, for those working in Europe (just so people arent missing out on such a powerful design tool), there are a few Cookie solutions that do comply with EU regulations.

    Osano cookie consent has a tutorial on how to implement it in Webflow and is free if you have under 5000 site visitors per month (although in order for form submissions to work it has to be set to 'permissive' rather than 'strict')

    For anyone intergrating Tag Manager, I believe you can get Cookiebot through there although I don't use it and don't know how it works.
