A safe harbour on US territory? Or does Amazon operate from the Guantánamo island?

Amazon is a US-based company, but they are signed up to respect the Safe Harbour agreement - which was thrashed out with the EU, so European companies could use accredited US providers safe in the knowledge the laws would be respected. Though Amazon has data centers all over the world (I think), so in theory you could be more 'local' by specifying it's hosted in a European data center.
