GA data storage

We are working with a UK public sector organisation and would like to use Google Analytics for their mobile apps. We would like to know where does Google store the data. Would that be in the EU/UK or multiple locations across the world?

Hi Devang,

I understand your client will want to know about where the data is being stored.

This may help - a list of data centres owned by Google:

https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/index.html

And if they need more information about where the data is and to what laws it is subject to in terms of data protection and privacy, you can send them to this page:

Hi Ali,

Thanks for the prompt reply. So if we want the data to be stored only in the EU then there is no guarantee that would happen?

I believe Google Analytics, when used in the UK, uses data centres in Dublin.

Your client should look at this especially http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/frameworks/

Sorry I can't help any further, but if in doubt you can contact Google directly via email or phone and I'm sure they'll be able to confirm for you.
