Your not logging "traffic" but you must be logging ISP IP's of a connecting customer otherwise anybody could do anything online through your VPN and would Fs ecure would be liable

F secure will not tell me if they are logging customer ISP IP's when "connecting and disconnecting" to Freedome--- this is not the same as logging traffic data and can id a user?

You are   --- customer ISP originating IP addresses when connecting and disconnecting to Freedome?

 

 

This is different to traffic but would still id a user right back to their originating ISP?

 

The only solution would be not to log the ISP IP and then Freedome would not know who was connecting----- but F secure will not clarify or answer this?

1. Do you keep ANY logs which would allow you to match an IP-address and a time stamp to a user of your service? If so, exactly what information do you hold and for how long?

    Freedome

1. We do not keep any such logs. If ever required by law under a jurisdiction, we would implement such a system, but only where applicable and keeping storage time to the minimum required by law of that respective jurisdiction. Note also that no registration is required to use our service, so any log information would generally map to an anonymous, random user ID (UUID) and the user’s public IP address.

 

 

The ISP IP matches to a Freedome customer's name and full address with their ISP---- so you do log a persons details and this service is not fuly anonomous.
