Power BI client data storage and EU regulation



Following the annulment of the much talked about EU 'Safe Harbour' directive, how can I be sure that the data stored on Power BI servers is compliant with EU laws? In particular, is it possible to choose the location of the server upon which Power BI stores client data?
