    Conditions for consent

    As we collect only the minimum of data that are necessary for normal service functioning, payment processing and user authentication in our system, and in the same time as we are GDPR compliant and follow all regulation that can be applied to VPN service, the only consent of user is given in the context of this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use in the form of starting using our service by the user.

    Encryption

    According to the Article 32 Section 2 of GDPR we have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a high level of security. Our database, where the users personal data is stored, is encrypted at rest with AES 256. 256-bit encryption is a data/file encryption technique that uses a 256-bit key to encrypt and decrypt data or files. It is one of the most secure encryption methods after 128- and 192-bit encryption, and is used in most modern encryption algorithms, protocols and technologies including AES and SSL. AES has been adopted by the U.S. government and is now used worldwide. Fifty supercomputers that could check a billion (1018) AES keys per second (if such a device could ever be made) would, in theory, require about 3x1051 years to exhaust the 256-bit key space.

    Disclosure of user's information

    We may disclose users personal information to third parties if:

    • We are, or all of its assets are, acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its users will be one of the transferred assets, but will remain covered by this Privacy Policy.
    • We are under a duty to disclose user's data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce our Terms of Service, or to protect the rights, property, or our safety.
