It’s a complicated matter, as often for legal things…
First of all : it’s not OVER for us europeans to use Webflow, but some aspects are legally more complicated since the Privacy Shield was deemed invalid.
From my understanding, the main issue is about personal and sensitive data. So I’d say that if your site handles personal data (like Facebook for examples) then you’ll need to ensure that this data is handled within EU following EU regulations.
For a Webflow site I imagine, this will mostly affect you for contact forms, and the usage of Cookies
Otherwise , the problem is more with 3rd parties like Memberstack who’s core business is to handle this sensitive data.
So what I’d say should be done:
- You need to check what data your site has access to and how it handles it
- If you’re suspicious about something, try to change it (better be safe than sorry)
- Webflow is a US company but has servers in EU thanks to AWS. So they need to ensure the data processed within EU is treated according to EU regulations. This needs to be done via a specific contract between them, AWS and whatever other provider they use.
- Webflow should really give transparency on this, I agree with you here.
- Hope that the new Privacy Shield the govs are working on will address this and that we can go back to work without having to worry about this
