US Cloud Act

The US Cloud Act, or the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act, is a law enacted in the United States that grants the government the authority to access electronic data held by US-based technology companies, even if that data is stored on servers located outside of the United States. Essentially, it allows US law enforcement agencies to compel companies to provide data stored in their systems, regardless of where the data is physically located, which has implications for privacy and data protection on a global scale.
