I'm sorry, but you don't seem to realize the true extent of the Cloud Act.

It means that a US judge can force a US company to turn over any data it has on anyone, irrespective of where that data is held and who the person is, as long as the server is managed by said US company.

There isn't even a need for a warrant. The judge says "jump", and the company can only say "how high ?".
