Privacy

Our approach to privacy and how we handle your data.

Privacy Policy

Last updated: January 29, 2020.

A privacy policy you can understand.

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.

This document (hereinafter – the “Privacy Policy”) explains the privacy rules applicable to all information collected or submitted when you access, install or use the Allieae, Inc. Services. All definitions and capitalized words used in this Privacy Policy are defined in our Terms of Service.

By visiting FreePN.com and by accessing, installing, and/or using the Allieae, Inc. Services you confirm that you have read this Privacy Policy and that you enter into legally binding relationship with Allieae, Inc. (hereinafter – "Allieae", "FreePN", "we" or "us"), as well as you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy. If you disagree with the rules of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Allieae, Inc. Services.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or your privacy, please contact us by email contact@freepn.com.

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.

Personal Data

FreePN does not collect any personal information about you. There is no such thing as a FreePN account. We do not collect logs of any kind. 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 and prompts for an email address the first time you launch the application. This is simply so that we can send you information about critical security updates and other updates regarding our products and service. We never verify your email address or associate it with you in any way, and you can, in fact, enter any random email address to satisfy the prompted dialog - such as fake_email@sharklasers.com. The prompt is also entirely skippable.

In order to maintain the 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 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.com stores inquiries and communications with users through our various email addresses.
  • Cookies. FreePN.com uses a single analytics tool to improve the user experience on the website: Matomo. We use a self-hosted instance of Matomo (a privacy-focused alternative to Google Analytics) for statistical assessment and website performance improvement. Matomo respects browser Do Not Track settings, and anonymizes all IP addresses. Matomo may occaionally use cookies.

You can set up warnings for every time the Site places a cookie in your browser, or you can choose to disable all cookies. You can do both through your browser settings. You can also set a Do Not Track setting in your browser, which our implementation of Matomo analytics will respect. Since each browser has a different procedure for managing cookies, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to do it.
