Privacy Policy and Safe Harbor and how they impact YouTrack InCloud Customers

Recently we have updated our Privacy Policy. Please read the updated full version. Just to remind, Privacy Policy describes which data we collect from our customers, how we store it and use it. It mostly refers to our InCloud customers, since we host and store their databases in our cloud. So, please read carefully and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Changes in Data Transfer Rules between EU and the US

The EU Court of Justice recently passed a ruling that affects the Safe Harbor agreement between the EU and the US, which is used as a means to transfer data between the EU and US while safely complying with data protection laws.

Although the final outcome of this is yet to be determined, at JetBrains we have taken some additional measures by allowing you to decide where you want your data to be hosted as a YouTrack InCloud customer. To this effect,

  1. We have added information about your current Data Center location to the General Settings. It will be either EU or US, according to your Geo Location when having created your instance.
  2. If you would like to change the location, please contact our technical support and we will move your instance.
  3. For new instances, and independently of Geo Locations, we have added an option to choose Data Center location (EU or US) when signing up.

Keep the Drive to Develop,

The JetBrains Team

    excellent way of letting choose customers where there data should reside. Where’s that dropdown menu in github, slack, gmail, evernote, dropbox, etc? It can be that simple.
