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.

    can't the good people from webflow at least tell us what they think about this? if this is even needed? Even in the comments there's discordant opinions.

    +2000 Votes and its still not in production.

    And all the Designers from the EU arent able to use the new functions lie membership and logical email.

    Webflow is actually using the CDN of Amazon Web Services. So, it's based on the visitors location. Visitors in Europe will be forwarded to e.g. Frankfurt and Ireland.

    This is really essential for all EU based companies. Is there any update yet on whether Webflow will offer this as a service?

    This is so important i can't believe it is not supported yet. I understand that EU is not that important for you (who cares for a so small market ...) but still, there is a market here, if only we can comply with GDPR.

    Looking to start using Webflow internally, but some of the stakeholders are blocking it because of this reason. I wonder if it even would be GDPR compliant with EU-only hosting, since Amazon is an American company?

    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,
    Lorenz

    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.
