Hello!

 

We're glad to inform you that we have just re-published the Privacy Notice and Terms. The essence and the scope of the privacy notice and terms remain unchanged.

 

A more detailed language has been used and additional clarifying paragraphs have been added. They pertain to Air procedures to respect GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679) requirements. The Regulation will enter into force on May the 25th, 2018, but we have checked that Air procedures have been always GDPR compliant.

 

Every effort has been made to keep the language simple and clear, and the whole notice and terms readable and understandable by anyone in a short, reasonable time.

 

You can read the Privacy Notice and Terms, which are also linked at the bottom of Air web site pages, here:

https://airvpn.org/privacy/

 

Kind regards and datalove

Hi, can you elaborate on this section please?

 

> Air web servers do not use third party add-ons or any other procedure that may lead to users profiling by any third party or by Air itself. 

 

I noticed in the HTML it has as follows

 


<!-- Piwik -->
<script type="text/javascript">
  var _paq = _paq || [];
  _paq.push(['disableCookies']);
  _paq.push(['trackPageView']);
  _paq.push(['enableLinkTracking']);
  (function() {
    var u = "https://airvpn.org/piwik/"
    _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'piwik.php']);
    _paq.push(['setSiteId', 1]);
    var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; g.type='text/javascript';
    g.defer=true; g.async=true; g.src=u+'piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s);
  })();

</script>
<noscript><p><img src="https://airvpn.org/piwik/piwik.php?idsite=1" style="border:0" alt="" /></p></noscript>
<!-- End Piwik Code -->


Would this not be considered an 'other procedure' that can 'lead to users profiling'? It's not clear what settings you've configured in Piwik or how it's used, perhaps just a mention would help any doubt about this software you use (which its very nature is for tracking users)

Piwik is specifically configured to respect users privacy. Usage of piwik is internal and does not enable us (or any third party of course) to extract any personally identifiable information or any personal data of any user, for example IP addresses are not collected and visitors logs are not kept. At the same time Piwik allows us to see the global amount of page views, web site visits and the amount of time our web server needs to generate a page to users. Such mentioned data are not, and can not be considered as, personal data of any user.

 

Kind regards

Addendum: Piwik main options have been always remained unused by us, so why keep it when it can cast such doubts even in a long time customer like you? Therefore it has been disabled, so anybody with doubts like yours can now have peace of mind and usual confidence in every field handled by AirVPN.

 

Kind regards
