Our standing with GDPR is presently under review by our legal department.

We can't make any statements regarding compliance at this time,

We do expect to be compliant by the May 2018 deadline.

My understanding is that Webfaction will be considered data processors if, for example, we're sending email through your services or storing someone's personal data with you (e.g. an email in a database for a site hosted with Webfaction). Under GDPR that means that a written contract should be in place between the data controller and yourselves so can you let us know when we can expect further information from Webfaction as it sounds as though some steps will be required on both sides before May 2018?

Cheers

Sure, open a support ticket to let us know your specific needs and we'll work with you from there.

somehow related to the original question: will webfaction offer a real eu location (eg amsterdam or frankfurt) next year as it does not look like a smooth ride with the uk at the moment (regulatory wise)?

At this time we have no plans to do so. If that changes, we'll be sure to announce that in our blog.

From a GDPR perspective I don't see why a UK or EU location would be an issue in the short/medium term as, irrespective of Brexit, the UK is adopting GDPR like the rest of the EU.
