 Avoid conflicts with UK data protection laws

Unusually, UK data protection laws  directly conflict  with US homeland security laws. The US laws state that the US government can access to your data at any time. UK data protection laws actively prohibit that if your data contains any aspect whatsoever of personal information. Consequently companies within the UK are in danger of violating their own professional and compliance standards. What is more worrying is that in many cases it is not obvious where your data is being stored. You may purchase a service such as dropbox within the UK, without any guarantees that your data remains within the UK or even within the EU,  this can cause companies to inadvertently breach their own compliance standards and commitments to their clients with serious consequences

Alternative to Dropbox – Even better than

Dropbox forces you to synchronise your files, with Collabor8online is an alternative to dropbox where synchronisation is an option.
