What about data rententions in E.U.

Recommended Posts

I know that European Court of Justice rules against mass data retention in EU and that in Sweden ,contrary to internet ISP,  VPN  are not submitted to this obligation .

In another side terrorism and international tensions push  governements to  enforce internet surveillance . So what are  the VPN obligations in differents European countries ?

Thank you for your replies

Do you mean terms of use or terms of running a VPN server/provider in the countries? Because in Germany for instance, there are no real obligations when it comes to using a VPN. You can be sued for using it as one way of interpreting one or a few of the "Computer Misuse Acts" ("circumventing access restrictions") but this almost never happens, precisely because every lawyer can interpret it another way. And because many services are hosted on another country's territory.

 

We do have our fads with wild data retention ideas when someone drives a truck into a crowd, though...


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

I believe this question has been answered a few times in the past. The VPN server is in a datacenter, the datacenter is in a country registered as a company. Most of them at least. So in the first place the company will be contacted about possible abuse of a server, and only they decide what to do.

If a VPN provider is based in another country the VPN server's country has no power over the VPN provider. How could it, the provider is registered somewhere else and plays by its local rules. Matters change when the provider and the server are in the same country.
