If you are planning on keeping the data local to the user, then I would suggest either SQLCE or SQLite as the database of choice.

Data should be on server or at least on my computer.

Then I would use SQL Server Express.

EDITED: Are you going to be the only user, or will there be other users? If you are going to be the only user, then still go with either SQLCE or SQLite. If there will be other users, then go with SQL Server Express.

If you are going to use a client application (like something made with windows forms or WPF) you need a web service, especially if others are going to consume data from it externally.

If you choose SQL Server Express, make sure that you pick the 2012 version. Older versions put limitation on where you can freely use them in terms of number of CPUs/cores and database size. I am not a lawyer, but my brief skimming of the 2012 EULA seems to not have those restriction anymore.
