DiveVPN Privacy Policy

DiveVPN is committed to protecting your privacy. We want you to understand what information we collect, what we don’t collect, and how we collect, use, and store information. We do not collect logs of your activity, including no logging of browsing history, traffic destination, data content, or DNS queries. We also never store connection logs, meaning no logs of your IP address, your outgoing VPN IP address, connection timestamp, or session duration.

Our guiding principle toward data collection is to collect only the minimal data required to operate a world-class VPN service at scale. We designed our systems to not have sensitive data about our customers; even when compelled, we cannot provide data that we do not possess.

This privacy policy will help you understand how Demlabs LLC (“DiveVPN,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) collects, uses, and stores information.

General Information

DiveVPN collects two types of information:

(i) Information related to your account (“personal information”)

This information is collected for the purpose of administering your DiveVPN subscription and includes your name, email address, and payment information, which you submit on our order page when you subscribe for the Services.

(ii) Aggregate Apps and VPN connection summary statistics

DiveVPN collects minimal information about usage in order to maintain excellent customer support and quality of service. The section below specifies in detail what information we collect. These statistics never include anything about what the user did with the VPN: no data about the contents or destinations of VPN traffic, no DNS queries, and no IP addresses.

Personal Information

DiveVPN collects personal information that you provide to us directly through the Site. We require that you provide personal information, such as an email address and payment information, in order to establish an DiveVPN account, and so that we can email you, collect payments from you, and respond to support queries that you initiate. The specific information collected varies depending on the payment method you choose. To minimize the amount of personal information you submit to us, we recommend that you use Bitcoin payments when subscribing to our Service.

With some forms of payment, the Site may redirect you to the website of a third-party payment processor (namely PayPal, BitPay, or Paymentwall) to complete the transaction. To understand what personal information these processors collect and store, please refer to the respective processor’s terms and privacy policy.

DiveVPN uses your email address for the following reasons:

    • To send emails related to payment transactions.
    • To provide links to our Site, including password reset emails.
    • To send you updates and announcements.
      • To communicate with you about your VPN services or respond to your communications.

     

    • To send marketing information, such as DiveVPN offers, surveys, invitations, and content about other matters in connection with DiveVPN (“Marketing emails”). You may choose to not receive Marketing emails by following the opt-out procedure described in these emails.

DiveVPN uses your personal information only for the purposes listed in this Privacy Policy, and we do not sell your personal information to third parties.

Aggregate Apps and VPN Connection Summary Statistics

We ensure that we never log browsing history, traffic destination, data content, IP addresses, or DNS queries. Therefore:

    • We do not know which user ever accessed a particular website or service.
      • We do not know which user was connected to the VPN at a specific time or which VPN server IP addresses they used.

     

    • We do not know the set of original IP addresses of a user’s computer.

Should anyone try to compel DiveVPN to release user information based on any of the above, we cannot supply this information because the data don’t exist.

In order to maintain excellent customer support and quality of service, DiveVPN collects the following information related to your VPN usage:

Apps and Apps versions

We collect information related to which Apps and Apps version(s) you have activated. Knowing your current version of the Apps allows our Support Team to troubleshoot technical issues with you.

Summary

We collect minimal usage statistics to maintain our quality of service.
We’ve engineered our systems to categorically eliminate storage of sensitive data. We may know THAT a customer has used DiveVPN, but we never know HOW they have utilized our Service. We stand by our firm commitment to our customers’ privacy by not possessing any data related to a user’s online activities.

Anonymous VPN Connection Diagnostics and Crash Reports (can be turned off by the user)

With your permission, we collect anonymized analytics data used for network diagnostics. We use these data in our network operations tools to help optimize network speeds and to let us identify problems related to specific apps, VPN servers, or ISPs. The information we receive is fully anonymized and cannot be tied back to individual DiveVPN users (i.e., we do not store which user sent which data, and we do not store IP addresses).

If you opt in to share this information with DiveVPN, we will collect the following information:

    • Diagnostic information about if and how a VPN connection attempt failed.
    • Speed test data.

Storing of Information Related to Email, Live Chat, and Feedback Forms

DiveVPN keeps records of any correspondence, questions, complaints, or compliments you submit to us through our Site or Services, along with our response. Depending on how you contact DiveVPN, we may collect your email address and any additional information you provide to us. Having full correspondence records enables our staff to provide the best possible customer support experience.
