Where is your data?

I read recently that many treaties, including the Trans Pacific Partnership, contain clauses prohibiting restrictions on where data is stored. It is designed, I understand, to stop sovereign governments from requiring that, for example, data stored in your cloud account or at your bank be stored on national servers. It means your data can mostly be stored anywhere. Obviously, this does not include confidential government data, but for you and I, there is no prohibition on, say, your data being stored in Russia or China. – Ronald Watts, Chatswood, NSW.
