Our approach to privacy and how we handle your data.
You have legitimate concerns about privacy and because we are in the business of helping you protect your identity online, we want you to know what limited information we do collect, and how that information is used when you use any of Allieae, Inc.'s Services.
We have a strict no logs policy.
Our top priority is customer data security and therefore have a strict no logs policy. What does that mean and how can we ensure that?
While other VPN services route all of your traffic through their own VPN servers (and some log (record) your data and traffic patterns), Allieae, Inc. servers in the FreePN network do only one thing: coordinate encrypted peer-to-peer network connections. FreePN servers help you connect with other peers in the FreePN network. That's it. Your web browsing traffic does not go through our servers, and we have no way accessing that information.
To facilitate the coordination of peer-to-peer network connections, you are temporarily assigned a 'peer network ID' on the FreePN network that is briefly stored in memory (never written to disk) on FreePN's coordinating servers. This is so we can coordinate your network connection. Once your connection to the network has been closed (i.e. you turn off or restart the FreePN service, or reboot your computer), your 'peer network ID' is deleted from the FreePN servers.
There are no accounts with FreePN. Our goal is to protect your privacy and to help you remain anonymous on the Internet.
Should you provide us personal information, below are ways that we use the information provided:
- Email address. We do not require a personal email address to use our Services, however, FreePN does maintain a mailing list (for our waitlist and newsletter). This is simply so that we can send you information about critical security updates and other updates regarding our products and services. We never verify your email address, associate it with you in any way, or share it with any third parties.
In order to maintain our VPN service, FreePN also processes limited technical information, which sometimes may be considered personal data. This information is used for improving the functionality and usability of our website and Allieae, Inc. Services. If you decide not to provide this limited information, we may not be able to provide you with the full scope of the Allieae, Inc. Services. Said information may include:
- Server load information. We monitor network & server performance in order to recommend the most suitable servers to our customers, and to increase the performance of the FreePN network.
- Customer service information. FreePN.org stores inquiries and communications with users through our various email addresses.
