How will GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation affect SwitchVPN?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA.
The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.
"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"); an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that person.
SwitchVPN has always been privacy and security focused which is why we do not log.
We believe that we cannot share information if we do not have the data, and as such, the personal information we hold about a customer is:
- Email Address
- Payment Processor Transaction ID
Note: If you signed up using a Credit Card or PayPal, your personal information ( including name and address) will be held by the respective payment processor.
