Personal data is subject to national regulation in terms of storage and access. The law around this is still being shaped in many countries. This is why we have been careful to inform you if your HAT could be local to you.
However, there is currently no law that would prohibit you from signing up to a HAT anywhere in the world to have your HAT hosted there. This is similar to emails. Many people from all over the world have emails on email servers in other countries. So you can still sign up for your HAT and choose where you wish to have your HAT hosted. We hope you would very much support the HAT movement and get your own HAT!
