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 for EU customers)
  • Finland (recommended for EU customers)
  • United Kingdom
  • USA
  • Canada
  • Australia

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

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).
