How do we use your information?
We use your information in order to provide you with the Service. This means that we will use the information to set up your account, provide you with support regarding the Service, communicate with you for updates, marketing offers or concerns you may have and conduct statistical and analytical research to improve the Service.
What types of information do we collect?
VPNUK does not collect, monitor, or log any traffic or use of its Virtual Private Network service, under any circumstances, on any platform. While you are not required to provide any identifiable (“personal”) information to browse our Site, in order to subscribe to our Services, you must first create an account and register with us. This is solely to maintain an active subscription to our service.
We aggregate and process information from Site visitors using cookies, pixels, and similar technologies, such as Google Analytics. In such cases of automated collection, the focus of this data collection is on our Site performance, fraud detection, and prevention purposes, not on your personal information. You can browse our Site without submitting any personal information. The only non-personal data we collect from all visitors is in order to improve our Site. This information is aggregated, offering a high-level view of our Site activity, including:
- Page requests
- Browser type
- Operating System
- Bounce rate
- Average time spent on our Site
We do not track user activities outside of our Site, nor do we track the website browsing or connection activities of users who are using our Services.
To create an account, in order to use our Service, we do not ask your name or surname. All you need to do is select your username, then provide the email address and choose your password. We do store the email address you have entered when creating an account for communication and anti-abuse purposes.
When you submit support requests or bug reports, we will collect the data that you choose to share with us about the issue being reported.
The Company relies on third parties to process credit card and PayPal transactions, and we do not save your full credit card details. For example, if you make a payment with a credit card, your name and the last 4 digits of the credit card number will become part of the invoice and saved by us.
Information we share
We do not rent or sell any Personal Information. We may disclose Personal Information to other trusted third-party service providers or partners for the purposes of providing you with the Services, storage and analytics. We may also transfer or disclose Personal Information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies.
Security and Confidentiality
We use industry-standard information, security tools, and measures, as well as internal procedures and strict guidelines to prevent information misuse and data leakage. Our employees are subject to confidentiality obligations. We use measures and procedures that substantially reduce the risks of data misuse, but we cannot guarantee that our systems will be absolutely safe. If you become aware of any potential data breach or security vulnerability, you are requested to contact us immediately. We will use all measures to investigate the incident, including preventive measures, as required.
