So it is now well known that NSA was adding spyware to the cisco export from US to other countries hardware (switches etc), probably without cisco knowing this. The machines were opened and after modification were again packaged with factory seals. I read this here:
and the links therein.
The obvious question is this: Since Purism sells to EU only from US (maybe with the exception of Germany) how do we know that the laptops or phones have not been
modified by NSA? Now or in the future. I think Purism must find a way to answer this. And if it is not possible to answer, then there must be a retailer in EU were products go directly from factory to EU.
