How we protect your data

We uses various methods to stay ahead of methods to protect your data. To name just a few:

We use drive encryption. Every time our servers access their drives, our OS must access an ever changing decryption key.

We provide service of VPN for our paying customers. By this method we allow you to tunnel into our servers so you can maintain utmost privacy and give you the ability to anonymize your total Internet browsing experience. Whether you are going to other websites or just ours.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Upon discovery of any data breach, we will notify you of said breach. As our databases and drives are encrypted, the chance of this is very low. But new techniques are always evolving, so we will always strive to stay on top of these malicious methods.

What third parties we receive data from

We sometimes use services and features provided by other websites such as Facebook, Yahoo, Google & Twitter. These are provided to give you the opportunity to cross post information on our sites. Please refer to their terms and conditions for how they handle your information.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Unlike the bigger companies, we try our very best not to automate decision making. We do not hold messages by default and if we host any categories that are private, you will have to ask for access to these features.
