Change server location due to data preservation law in Germany (Vorratsdatenspeicherung)
In Germany the data preservation law has just recently been agreed on (Vorratsdatenspeicherung). As your servers are in Germany you will have to comply with this law. There are other countries (as far as I know for example Netherlands, Singapur etc.) that do not have a data preservation law. The suggestion is to relocate your servers to a non data preservation obliging country.
There is no data preservation law active in Germany. Politicians are discussing such a law currently, but email is taken out of it: https://tutanota.de/blog/posts/germany-wants-to-reintroduce-data-retention-laws
In addition the last data preservation law in Germany was ruled unconstitutional.
However, we monitor the situation closely. If need be, we would change server location.
