Are you asking about QuickBooks Online? Intuit is hosting it on AWS. You should ask the question to Amazon and share the info with us later 8)

Thanks for checking in with us, Willowlicious.

 

Aside from the information provided by Fiat, with QuickBooks Online, your data will be stored in the cloud so that it can be accessed by multiple users anywhere, anytime. The desktop versions of QuickBooks typically store data on a server or with a cloud-based service provider.

 

As long as you use the online form to upload your data to us, it will be protected. We use industry-standard SSL encryption. Data is removed from our servers promptly after you have uploaded your file. Then, we store a copy on our local servers during conversion. Also, we move your data to secure offline storage where it's encrypted. To learn more about this one, see the articles below:

Thank you for the reply.

 

From a south Africa POPIA stand point, as  personal data is not allowed to leave the country without certain measures in place, I'm trying to identify where quickbooks servers are that hold this data.

 

Even if the data is stored temporarily, are you able to tell me what country all servers the store this data both temporarily and permanently.

Hi Willowlicious,

 

I'm unable to tell the location of the server your data are being hold. Rest assured, all your company's information are safe and are securely protected by the system.

I'll be around if there's anything that I can help. Keep safe!

Thank you.

 

Surely you should be able to tell where your data is stored?

 

the problem you will have with south africa clients is POPIA, if they cant identify where they are sending data to they dont comply with the new act.

 

We have to be able to identify which country our data from SA is being sent to as certain countries dont have enough data protection in place.

 

You end up finding your SA clients moving onto local accounting platforms

For your reference

I am not sure Intuit will answer your question. What we have known that they are partnering with AWS to host QBO. AWS has local datacenters in your region and it should be complied with your regulation.

 

Just my 2 cents.

Thanks, but as a company processing data you should know where data is stored.

sadly not. 

 

Quickbooks legally should know where their servers are, but they don't seem to know

Even Microsoft will state where your data is being stored.
