Avoid conflicts with UK data protection laws

Unusually, the UK data protection laws fly in the face of US homeland security laws. In essence the US laws mean that the US government can have access to your data at any time it sees fit. UK data protection laws actively prohibit that if your data contains any aspect of personal information. Whilst our governments seek compromise on these legalities, companies within the UK are in danger of violating their own professional standards relating to compliance and data security. 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, once again leading to companies inadvertently breaching their own compliance standards and commitments to their clients. Needless to say this can be very costly.

Dropbox Alternative – Even better than

Dropbox forces you to synchronise your files, with Collabor8online is an alternative to dropbox where synchronisation is an option. You can work on a document, prepare it, perfect it and when you’re ready you can share it by pushing it to Collabor8online. Alternatively, you can synchronise folders from your PC with Collabor8online if you prefer to work that way. Collabor8online gives you the choice.


In real use terms this becomes extremely relevant. You may be working on a document, drawing, image or piece of design work but even as it approaches completion it’s essential that you keep that content private to ensure the integrity of both your data and your project. Collabor8online allows you to work on that document privately, if necessary you may use Collabor8online to seek final approval and signing off of your document once you’ve produced a completed draft. Only when you are completely satisfied that your document is ready, and it is been approved in accordance with your own quality control standards, should you formally publish it within the appropriate area of Collabor8online.  the mechanism for making this work is simplicity itself. Users may create folders with descriptions as “Documents – for approval” and “Documents – approved” –  Collabor8online even allows you to move  or copy documents from one folder to another once they are approved.
