If you store this data outside the EU, maybe because your server is located in a US datacenter and (the operator of that datacenter) has not bound itself to the EU Model Contract Clauses, you can get into trouble easily. I could sue you. Any other person who commented (who resides within the EU) can do too. That would cost you time and money. Of course you can lock me out or decide to shut down your website. But not everybody has these options. So a lot of services have to think about the value of privacy.
