We reserve the right to make changes to this list or define what we consider abuse. Check the Acceptable Use Policy for more details about the Prohibited Activities.

BANDWIDTH USAGE

Bandwidth transfer is subject to fair usage policy. Excessive/abusive bandwidth consumption that may result in service disruption is not acceptable.

SUSPENSION AND TERMINATION

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the privileges of users who commit violations of our policies and service agreements. We will determine, in our discretion, whether there has been a breach of these terms through your use of our Site or VPN Service and suspend or terminate a user's account accordingly.

ANTI-FRAUD

We take precautionary steps to prevent fraudulent sign-ups, by relying on automated checks or by doing manual checks. We will never ask for proof of identity, such as a scanned copy of a Government issued ID. Instead, we would rather decline an order which we believe to be suspicious.

LOGGING

  • We do not log any user activity, such as but not limited to sites you visit, DNS lookups, email messages, passwords, etc.
  • We only log access to our VPN Service for troubleshooting, service improvement and security purposes.
  • We log customer's IP address, VPN session connect and disconnect time, amount of traffic transferred. All these session logs are stored on a secure (fully encrypted) server in a non-disclosed location and are deleted on a daily basis.
  • We do not give your personal info to any third parties. We do not cooperate with any requests for information unless we are ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction.
  • We value your privacy and we will do our best to protect it.

    PRICING / FEES TERMS

    We reserve the right, with prior notice, to change the pricing of our VPN Service at any time.

  • REFUNDS

    We offer a 7-days money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with our VPN service or you can't use our service for technical reasons, notify us within the first 7 days after your account activation, and you will be given a 100% refund of the paid amount.
    If a refund is due, you will be notified by e-mail. The refund process can take up to 15 days (usually less than a day) after cancellation of your account to receive your refund depending on payment form used. If you have not received your refund after 15 days, please inform us.
    We do not refund orders from users suspended for breaching our policies.
    Refund requests must be based on valid reasons. We do not refund orders for vague reasons like "it doesn't work" without providing us details and letting us help. For example, if the customer doesn't use the correct VPN account credentials, first we need to make sure that the credentials are correct.
    Issuing a 2nd refund is subject to our own discretion. Essentially, if you sign-up with us more than once and ask for more than a single refund, the 2nd (potentially others) refund request may be denied.
    Bitcoin refunds are made in Bitcoin, not the USD/EUR/GBP/other currency equivalent. For example, if you paid 0.05 BTC and you ask for a refund after a few days, you will receive 0.05 BTC back. The obvious reason for doing so is to protect both you and us from BTC's massive volatility, as well as discouraging speculative signups & refund requests.
    Not all payment instruments can be refunded! If you pay using a payment method that can't be refunded, we will only be able to refund using PayPal, Bitcoin.

    We do our best to keep the VPN Service up and running, providing high data transfer speeds to all customers, but we can't guarantee it.
