    Hi,

    you did not answer the question. Will you give info to marketing court in Finland if they ask, without court order?

    "After all, our goal is to secure your privacy when browsing the web, not securing your anonymity when committing crimes". Most ridicilous statement from privacy provider. You are assuming when I want privacy, I want it to for reason to commit crimes. What if your customer was a whistleblower, or chinese resident...

    I remember times when F-Secure was legit, decades ago. Can't recommend to anyone now.
