If your interested in privacy(which I assume you are if you want a VPN) avoid ironsocket as they keep logs. https://torrentfreak.com/which-vpn-serv ... -140315/2/
It isn't that bad as they only keep the logs for 3 days and only use it to prevent fraud / abuse.
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?

We keep limited session logs for all of our services which include VPN, HTTP, SOCKS5 and Smart DNS Proxy. Session logs record the time and date of the user’s session connection and disconnection, the IP address used for the session, and a numerical representation of how many bytes were transferred. These logs are typically kept for 3 days, usually less, after which they are purged. The main reason we retain this data is to prevent fraud and abuse. Since we used Shared IPs on our servers, and do not log activity, it is very hard if not impossible to know what a user is doing.


4. In the event you receive a DMCA takedown notice or European equivalent, how are these handled?

IronSocket operates under the laws of the SAR of Hong Kong and is not subject to the DMCA or its European equivalent. We only provide VPN and Proxy connectivity services, and do NOT host any user uploaded content on any of our servers. While IronSocket is not subject to DMCA, some of our hosting partners are. If they receive and escalate a DMCA notice to us, we reply to the provider that we do not log our user’s activity, we utilize shared IP addresses, and it is next to impossible to determine any activity of our users. We then confirm P2P is not being used on servers where P2P is not allowed.

thanks for this info - I considered the above but given that all they keep track of is your IP address, connection start/disconnect time and the amount of data transferred (but not actual activity) - I think it is safeish enough....

I asked this on the PIA thread as well: but does the discounted price renew after the first year? Or does the price go back up to normal?

No, goes back up to normal price.

"$29.97 USD for the first year. Then $49.95 USD for each year."
The above shows up in my PayPal checkout when I picked the Subscribe PayPal option.

As far as I know, PIA's deal renews yearly at the same discounted price. When I signed up, they set up a yearly PayPal renewal at the same $31.95 yearly.

Someone on the PIA thread mentioned that you could renew for 4 years...

It is good to know. I was tempted to get IronSocket, nah now since everything worked out OK. Only my Fire TV can benefit from its DNS Proxy, but it is a pain to switch country account in order to work.

Thanks!

Anyone experiencing DNS leak?
Seriously who cares about DNS... I don't know why it's even something people concern themselves with unless you're worried about browsing a domain that you don't want others to know you're browsing? DNS has nothing to do with torrents, for example. It's certainly not illegal in any way to browse a site that enumerates torrents.
