Our principle toward date collection is to collect only the minimal data required to operate a VPN service.To offer better clarity for you, let's start with three points:
We do not log how you utilize VPN connection, which means we do not see the applications, service or websites you use personally while connected to our Service nor do we store them.
We do not store your original IP address which means we cannot share it to anyone no matter what happened.
We will not sell, use, or disclose any personal data to third parties not mentioned in this Privacy for any purpose.
We designed our systems to not have sensitive data about our customers; even when compelled, we cannot provide data that we do not possess.
Such as registration date, email address (only if you choose to sign up with an email), subscription status (only if you make the purchase);
This data is automatically collected during actions including registration, purchase. It is strictly used for the user-support purpose.
Such as payment method, transaction ID (or reference ID) and timestamp;
This data is automatically collected by us when you make a purchase and is used for user support and troubleshooting only. Virtually, more information including geolocation, cardholder last name and last four digits of the Credit card may be collected independently by a third-party payment platform which is separated from our internal system.
Such as your device information, app version, data usage and geolocation(only city-level)
