Could the Board or Council share the appropriate laws? Presumably
under whatever jurisdiction TMO, Nokia and/or Nemein (who I believe
Reggie subcontracted through) are held?

Also, the link to TMO's privacy policy that we all accepted[1] which
said the data would be subject to that jurisdiction? And that we
weren't just submitting data which was, effectively, Reggie's to do
with as he pleases?

To cut a long story short, I'm not convinced there is any issue with
data privacy laws for moving where the database is hosted, given that
where it was hosted has not played any part in the TMO administration
or has been using facing in any way shape or form! :-)

Thanks in advance,


[1] I don't believe there is one.
