OK, I think of "internet storage" and "cloud storage as pretty much the same thing. My point was that DDG search is a great resource for finding the type of information you are asking about here. I could have also provided https://duckduckgo.com/?q=privacy+based+... but the results are pretty similar, pointing to cloud base storage.

(The following are my personal views and not those of DuckDuckGo) Personally, I have used a Pogoplug device (not the PP cloud based solution which seems to be all that they market now), which is located in my home and is available via a secure connection. PP no longer lists the devices on their web site but they are readily available on Amazon and eBay at very low prices. Just attached a USB storage device to, register it and you're ready to go. I've had mine for over 5 years and it still works great. There are other personal NAS devices that might better fit your needs.

x.15's response is good, but another alternative would be setting up your own FTP server. You need to purchase your own storage, but if you use SFTP it's impossible to track. Example.

Mega.co.nz 50 Gb free private storage, encrypted (so MEGA itself doesn't know what is stored on it's servers), also, there are transparency reports for what how and why was done.
