A curated list of European SAAS vendors

Yuli Stremovsky
Privacybunker.IO Founder

I am an expert in marrying technological solutions with privacy.

For startup founders from a startup founder ;-)

As a startup founder, you need to think about the conversion rates. Better conversion rates mean better business.

If you want to target European customers, and you are using CRM service from Silicon Valley, you can not simply do it without notifying your potential customers.

Some privacy experts will tell you, it is enough to write about it in your privacy policy. Others will tell you to change your landing page and add a checkbox to your customers to give consent for their personal data to be processed by the USA CRM service.

We have another solution for you — stick with cloud services provided by European companies.

You can simplify your privacy policy and your legal obligations, by avoiding personal data transfer out of the European Union. For example from Europe to the US.

To make it really simple go with European SAAS vendors when choosing your service provider.

We decided to build a curated list of European SAAS vendors for you.

Many services provide a limited free plan so it is great for early-stage companies.

You still need to list the services you use in your privacy policy.
