So I have been reading up on EU law, and if I understand what the EU.
- Australian businesses of any size may need to comply if they have an establishment in the EU, if they offer goods and services in the EU, or if they monitor the behaviour of individuals in the EU.
Now because our business allows anyone in the world to access our data and we collect data from people all around the world, I am wondering how MongoDB atlas complies with these EU laws.
The GDPR requires that all data collected on citizens must be either stored in the EU , so it is subject to European privacy laws, or within a jurisdiction that has similar levels of protection.
But from my understanding Altas does not do this, it stores it on a cluster of servers that we the customer selected when we signed up.
So how would we try and be GDPR compliant when using MongoDB when it only affects a small percentage of our clients.
Is it possible to clone an atlas in realtime and have the data in the EU, and connect EU customers to that - I can see a number of issues with this method though as data would still be synced back to the US servers.
Would love to hear suggestions and ways to solve this issue.
