Brexit gets serious – bye bye Britain

UK in Europe

We’ve just had the Brexit referendum and I started to get the following messages from my service providers:

As you are aware, on 23 June 2016, the United Kingdom (UK) decided by referendum to direct its government to exit the European Union (EU). Since we currently host your data in the UK, we write to inform and assure you that we are already planning for a UK exit, even though the exit may not occur for years. First and foremost, we will continue to host data in locations subject to EU data protection laws. We recognize the importance many of our clients place on having their data hosted exclusively in such countries. Therefore, in the wake of a UK exit from the EU, we will ensure client data can be hosted elsewhere in the EU as necessary.

Hmm, apparently the Brits got crazy…
