Question for the community.  I have been using a USA-based hosting company for my Canadian business clients.  One of them recently moved his website to Wordpress and it is hosted on Site Ground. 

The former provider is telling me that because the site is now hosted in USA that it is now subject to USA privacy and internet laws. Does anyone have comments on this statement and if so, please provide any backup documents. 


The former provider has also advised that switching from a hard-coded site to a WordPress site has caused his SEO score obtained from this site to drop from 89 to 49.8.  Does anyone have any comments on this statement?
