Where and how is my survey data hosted/stored?

If you are using our LimeSurvey Cloud hosting:

When creating your LimeSurvey Cloud instance, you will be asked for the server location, where we will host your data. At the moment we offer the following hosting location:

  • Germany (recommended in general for EU customers)
  • United Kingdom
  • USA
  • Canada
  • Australia

After selecting a location, we will store your data exclusively on a server in that country.

We are not using cloud services so we can always exactly determine which server your data is stored on.

If you are using our LimeSurvey Community Edition:

In that case all your data is stored on your or your provider’s server (usually the one where you installed LimeSurvey).
