BoxZones if you aren't a business customer

Just finding how to ask a question is a major mission! So frustrated ... 


I have a very small business - Only one user, so Business pricing options don't work for me as they require a minimum of 3 users. So - the Personal Pro option is likely to be the one I need. But I need to know where my data will be stored because of GDPR. I have looked through the forum and found the long complicated answers about safe harbour etc. but just need a simple answer to where will my data be and can I choose.
