Why does Jetpack send comments to a US-server on my self-hosted blog?

  1. A quick look into the source code of my webpage after installing Jetpack (and activating the comments module) shows, that there is a JavaScript that manipulates the original comment form to send comments to a Jetpack server in the US instead of directly sending them to my blog.
    As I'm a German citizien, I'd need to ask my visitors for permission in order to do so legally. This is the reason why Akismet cannot be used in Germany either.

    Looking forward to your answer.
