In some time i thinks that the /e/ i doesnt that private and of course i know what they saying but i some times doesnt feel like that and i dont know where my personal data is because i use/used (yes i in this time still need google for some things) the e cloud and i dont where the the data center is, if the e foundation can look in it and some those things but i only thinks that and is only my opinion
If your concern is about /e/ Cloud data-centers location, please try the following :
MxToolBox reports that the IP address behind the ecloud.global name is owned by Hetzner GMBH
Hetzner reports data-centers locations in Germany and Finland
GeoIP request for IP address (220.127.116.11) reports it’s full address in Germany
NB : address is accurate : I own several Hetzner services in Finland and GeoIP reports their correct address.
About /e/ privacy : https://e.foundation/legal-notice-privacy/
Of course /e/ admins have full rights on /e/ servers to perform mandatory administrative tasks.
Unless you’re running you own server, you’ll likely have to face this situation in most of cases (not limited to /e/).
That’s life, the way it is in this “modern” world : you have to trust, with discernment, people who provide you with services that you can’t provide to yourself.
I hope I understood your concerns and brought some answers.
All data on your “own” /e/ server is encrypted and never shared, sold or traded to any third party
About /e/ Cloud upgrades : admins don’t need to read your data (as opening files to look inside), but they need some rights on the files containing them for technical purposes (as migrating from a storage to another, performing backups, …).
