Politique de confidentialité

We want you to understand what information we collect, what we don’t collect, and how we collect, use, and store information. We do not collect logs of your activity, including no logging of browsing history, traffic destination, data content, or DNS queries. We also never store connection logs, meaning no logs of your IP address, your outgoing VPN IP address, connection timestamp, or session duration.

Our guiding principle toward data collection is to collect only the minimal data required to operate a world-class VPN service at scale. We designed our systems to not have sensitive data about our customers; even when compelled, we cannot provide data that we do not possess.
This privacy policy will help you understand how GNUAPP UNIPESSOAL LDA (“GnuVPN,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) collects, uses, and stores information.

This privacy policy will help you understand how GNUAPP UNIPESSOAL LDA (“GnuVPN,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) collects, uses, and stores information.

General Information
GnuVPN collects four types of information:

(i) Information related to your account (“personal information”)

This information is collected for the purpose of administering your GnuVPN subscription and includes your name, email address, and payment information, which you submit on our order page when you subscribe for the Services.

(ii) Aggregate Apps and VPN connection summary statistics

GnuVPN collects minimal information about usage in order to maintain excellent customer support and quality of service. The section below specifies in detail what information we collect. These statistics never include anything about what the user did with the VPN: no data about the contents or destinations of VPN traffic, no DNS queries, and no IP addresses.

(iii) (User-controlled option): Anonymous app diagnostics, including crash reports

App diagnostic data, which include crash reports, usability diagnostics, and VPN connection diagnostics, are anonymized and cannot be tied back to individual GnuVPN users. This feature is similar to a “send bug report” option. Users can specify in the settings menu of any GnuVPN App whether to send these data to us.

Personal Information
GnuVPN collects personal information that you provide to us directly through the Site. We require that you provide personal information, such as an email address and payment information, to establish a GnuVPN account, so that we can email you, collect payments from you, and respond to support queries that you initiate. The specific information collected varies depending on the payment method you choose. To minimize the amount of personal information you submit to us, we recommend that you use crypto payments when subscribing to our Service.
With some forms of payment, the Site may redirect you to the website of a third-party payment processor (any payment systems) to complete the transaction. To understand what personal information these processors collect and store, please refer to the respective processor's terms and privacy policy.
GnuVPN uses your email address for the following reasons:
  • To send emails related to payment transactions.
  • To provide links to our Site, including password reset emails.
  • To send you updates and announcements.
  • To communicate with you about your VPN services or respond to your communications.
  • To send marketing information, such as GnuVPN offers, surveys, invitations, and content about other matters in connection with GnuVPN (“Marketing emails”).
  • You may choose not to receive Marketing emails by following the opt-out procedure described in these emails. GnuVPN uses your personal information only for the purposes listed in this Privacy Policy, and we do not sell your personal information to third parties.
    Any personal information associated with GnuVPN accounts is controlled only by GnuVPN, including being stored on systems and servers owned or leased by GnuVPN and its subsidiaries. In the limited circumstances where this data may need to be processed by other related entities, it may be shared only when required, and for the duration required, for processing solely related to the purposes and legitimate interests outlined in this Privacy Policy, while ensuring at all times the same data protection standards. For avoidance of doubt, these circumstances do not include any situations where control of personal information of GnuVPN users will be transferred to any other related entities, including but not limited to our ultimate holding company, GNUAPP UNIPESSOAL LDA, for any duration of time.
    Aggregate Apps and VPN Connection Summary Statistics
    We ensure that we never log browsing history, traffic destination, data content, IP addresses, or DNS queries. Therefore:
  • We do not know which user ever accessed a particular website or service.
  • We do not know which user was connected to the VPN at a specific time or which VPN server IP addresses they used.
  • We do not know the set of original IP addresses of a user’s computer.
  • Should anyone try to compel GnuVPN to release user information based on any of the above, we cannot supply this information because the data don’t exist.
    In order to maintain excellent customer support and quality of service, GnuVPN collects the following information related to your VPN usage:

    Apps and Apps versions

    We collect information related to which Apps and Apps version(s) you have activated. Knowing your current version of the Apps allows our Support Team to troubleshoot technical issues with you.

    Successful connection

    We collect information about whether you have successfully established a VPN connection on a particular day (but not a specific time of the day), to which VPN location (but not your assigned outgoing IP address), and from which country/ISP (but not your source IP address). This minimal information assists us in providing technical support, such as identifying connection problems, providing country-specific advice about how to best use our Service, and to enable GnuVPN engineers to identify and fix network issues.

    Aggregate sum of data transferred (in MB)

    We collect information regarding the total sum of data transferred by a given user. Although we provide unlimited data transfer, if we notice that a single user pushes more traffic than thousands of others combined, thereby affecting the quality of service for other GnuVPN users, we may contact that user for an explanation.

    We’ve engineered our systems to categorically eliminate storage of sensitive data. We may know THAT a customer has used GnuVPN, but we never know HOW they have utilized our Service. We stand by our firm commitment to our customers’ privacy by not possessing any data related to a user’s online activities.

    Anonymous App Diagnostics, including Crash Reports (can be turned off by the user)
    With your permission, we collect anonymized app diagnostic data, which include crash reports, usability diagnostics, and VPN connection diagnostics. We use this data in our network operations tools to help optimize network speeds and to let us identify problems and areas for improvement related to specific apps, VPN servers, or ISPs. The information we receive is fully anonymized and cannot be tied back to individual GnuVPN users (i.e., we do not store which user sent which data, and we do not store user IP addresses).
    If you opt in to share this information with GnuVPN, we will collect the following anonymized information:
  • Diagnostic information about if and how a VPN connection attempt failed.
  • Speed test data.
  • App diagnostics, including crash reports and usability diagnostics, also without any personally identifiable information. These are handled in an anonymized form by these third parties, dependent on the platform you are using GnuVPN on:
  • Windows: Hockeyapp, owned by Microsoft, and Sentry, owned by Functional Software, Inc. See Microsoft’s Privacy Policy and Sentry’s Privacy Policy.
  • Mac: Crashlytics, owned by Google, and Sentry, owned by Functional Software, Inc. See Crashlytics’s Privacy Policy and Sentry’s Privacy Policy.
  • Linux: Sentry, owned by Functional Software, Inc. See Sentry’s Privacy Policy.
  • iOS: Firebase Crashlytics, owned by Google, and Apple. See Apple’s Privacy Policy and Firebase’s Privacy and Security documentation. You can disable Apple’s crash reporting in iOS settings as described here.
  • Android: Firebase Crashlytics, owned by Google. See Firebase’s Privacy and Security documentation.
  • Browser extensions: Google Analytics, owned by Google. See Google’s Privacy Policy.
  • Upon activation of any GnuVPN App, you will be asked if you would like to share these data. You can start or stop sharing these diagnostic data at any time in the App’s settings menu. On iOS, Apple’s crash reporting can be turned off in iOS settings.
    Jurisdiction and Applicable Law
    GnuVPN’s core mission is to keep your information private. In service of this mission, GnuVPN’s headquarters and registered place of business are in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, which has stricter laws concerning information disclosure than most countries. The SVG has no data retention laws, and any legal order requiring a SVG company to disclose customer records must come from the SVG Supreme Court. Under SVG law, information requests from foreign courts or law enforcement are subject to a “dual criminality” provision, meaning that the request is upheld by the SVG Supreme Court only if the same crime is punishable by at least a one-year prison sentence under SVG law, had it taken place in the SVG. Should we receive a valid legal order from the SVG Supreme Court, it is important to note that GnuVPN does not collect any IP addresses, browsing history, traffic data, or DNS queries that could be used to identify any specific user. Customer data is controlled by and stored under GnuVPN, not by its ultimate holding company, GNUAPP UNIPESSOAL LDA, or other related entities. GNUAPP UNIPESSOAL LDA operates under SVG jurisdiction, in accordance with SVG laws. Consequently, any demand via legal means for GnuVPN customer data is subject to the SVG jurisdiction and laws; we fight vigorously to defend our rights (and those of our users) if an attempt is made to bypass the privacy protections provided for by the SVG. A parent, subsidiary, or related entity cannot be compelled to, nor would it voluntarily, provide data stored by GNUAPP UNIPESSOAL LDA.

    Storing of Information Related to Email, Live Chat, and Feedback Forms

    GnuVPN keeps records of any correspondence, questions, complaints, or compliments you submit to us through our Site or Services, along with our response. Depending on how you contact GnuVPN, we may collect your email address and any additional information you provide to us. Having full correspondence records enables our staff to provide the best possible customer support experience.

    We use two different third-party platforms for support. When you correspond with us using these platforms, they will store your correspondence records—including your email address, as well as user and device attributes that help with troubleshooting, such as the country you are contacting us from and your device’s operating system.

    Security Measures to Protect Your Information
    GnuVPN uses best-in-class physical, procedural, and technical security with respect to our offices and information storage facilities so as to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of information. Access to user information is restricted to staff who require such access to perform their job functions.
    While we believe these systems are robust, it is important to understand that no data security measures in the world can offer 100% protection.
    Servers are housed in data centers with strong security practices. None of these data centers require us to collect or store any traffic data or personal information related to your use of VPN Services. If any data center were to ask us to log such data, we would immediately cease operations with said data center and find alternative options.
    Even if a government were to physically seize one of our VPN servers and manage to break its disk encryption, there would be no logs or information that would tie any individual user to a particular event, website, or behavior.
