Change in Terms: Notice for Bluemix Data Connect customers outside of US

Share this post:

Last year we made the London Data Center an option when provisioning instances of Bluemix Data Connect so now users are able to choose a data center outside the US. We are notifying customers about a change in the Privacy Shield Privacy Policy for Certified IBM Cloud Services for the reason that data may temporarily migrate to a data center within the US in the event it becomes necessary to maintain availability.

For more details on the Privacy Shield Privacy Policy, please visit:

As always, we’re here to help! You can reach out to us on Stack Overflow, dW Answers, or @IBMBluemixHelp on Twitter.
