path of a future order

hello, i'm not sure i am in the right section but i need to ask it somewhere...

I would like someone to explain to me the path of a future order between my computer, the data feed data center, my broker servers, the exchange and the clearing firm.

If the data feed data center route my order to the exchange, how does my broker check if i'm not violating is margin requirement?

I'm france located and a Eurex trader. If have an U.S. broker, but a UK data provider data center, how much back and forth between the broker's servers and the data provider's before it sents my order to the exchange?

I'm a manual scalper and i am concerned about to much latency in the sending of my orders... (wich will happen if my signal cross the atlantic several times)

That would be great if someone could enlight me!
