hidemynet keeps logs.
"Customer agrees to abide by all local, state, and federal laws pursuant to services delivered in Dallas, Texas, United States of America. Proper venue for legal remedies shall be Dallas County, Dallas Texas. All contract terms found herein shall be governed by Texas State Law or the Uniform Commercial Code, whichever may be applicable.

1. Do you keep ANY logs which would allow you or a 3rd party to match an IP address and a time stamp to a user of your service? If so, exactly what information do you hold?
1) Yes, any serious company would. I would be concerned about the quality of a company who did not. If no logs are kept it'd be impossible to respond to a DMCA complaint which puts the company liable for a 100,000$ fine. I highly doubt you're going to find any company willing to risk that sort of liability on a 5$/month vpn account. Good luck!
^^^ To be clear, this is a blatant lie by this VPN company, and a gross misrepresentation of the burdens and responsibilities of the DMCA.
2. Under what jurisdictions does your company operate and under what exact circumstances will you share the information you hold with a 3rd party?
2) USA - Also, it's the jurisdiction of the server endpoint -- Not the company itself.
^^^ This too is a misrepresentation by this VPN company. There is a serious lack of precedent on this, and in almost all cases it is EITHER the jurisdiction of the server end point AND the location of the company or anywhere the company has a physical presence.

The most important thing is how does this VPN compare to others in term of privacy, quality, and speed?
As we know, people use VPN because of privacy. If this VPN keep track of any log and provide them to anyone that ask for it, then you can't really trust this service.
And also quality and speed, does the servers stay up 99.9% of the time? And what's the speed people get? There are many other cheap VPN but their servers seems to have problem either staying up or very crowded that cannot login. Or the speed is just slow.
And does this VPN block any kind of connection? Like does it block P2P?
Looking to stream content? (ie. Hulu, Netflix, UK Content) I recommend IPVanish, HidemyAss and this.
Looking for a secure VPN to access personal account on the go? I recommend StrongVPN with a dedicated IP address
Looking for Torrents? I would google TorrentFreaks VPN review and pick one of VPN that doesn't keep logs. I recommend AirVPN but these typically cost more and they're smaller companies.
I think the best bang for the buck is this deal, only $25 and allows me to stream international media without hiccups. (I'm using the DNS Redirection so I get full speeds)
