Will using Stape Europe hosting for server GTM make my tracking GDPR compliant?

You must prevent access of US intelligence services (including Google Analytics) to the personal data of European users. One of the solutions is implementing an EU proxy server. Server Google Tag Manager can be used as a proxy server. Stape Europe is a European company that uses a European cloud server provider to run your server GTM container. But only using Stape Europe for sGTM won't make your Google Analytics GDPR compliant. You also need to pseudoanonimize user data before sending it to GA. It needs to be done manually using the server GTM interface.

What does pseudonymisation of user data mean?

It means that you should remove any personal identifiers that can be used to identify a particular user. The list of user identifiers might be set on a country level, so please check your country's regulations and talk with your lawyers. Usually, it includes user IP, user ID, URL parameters, browser, device, referral site, etc.

Which zones do you offer?

There are three zones - Amsterdam (Netherlands), Warsaw (Poland), and Paris (France). We are looking to expand zones in the nearest future.
