What is a VPN? A VPN is a virtual private network, and allows you to securely tunnel your connection to the VPN server, so that it appears that all your data originates from that server. VPNs are also useful on public networks in order to prevent other users from snooping your connection, as all information through the tunnel is encrypted.

From the privacy faq:

TorGuard's Privacy Policy

In an effort to protect our clients' and site visitors privacy and rights, TorGuard has established a Privacy Policy which explains what information we gather on visitors and what we do with information that we gather.

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which TorGuard collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users of this Web site (each, a "User").
Privacy

Users' privacy is very important to TorGuard. We are committed to safeguarding the information Users entrust to TorGuard.
The Information We Collect

TorGuard collects personally identifiable information from Users through online forms for ordering products and services. We may also collect information about how Users use our Web site, for example, by tracking the number of unique views received by the pages of the Web site or the domains from which Users originate. We use "cookies" to track how Users use our Web site.
How We Use Information

TorGuard may use personally identifiable information collected through our Web site to contact Users regarding products and services offered by TorGuard and its trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners, and otherwise to enhance Users' experience with TorGuard and such affiliates, independent contractors and business partners.

TorGuard is offering a $1 24 hour trial for those who want to test out speeds, leakage, etc.

http://torguard.net/terms.php

REFUND POLICY
If you are less than 100% satisfied with the TorGuard.net VPN, Proxy or Email service, we will gladly refund your payment if the refund is requested within thirty (30) days from the date of the purchase. Requests made later than the 30 day purchase date window will be denied. Additionally, accounts that have exceeded 10GB or more in download volume during the 30 day trial period will not be eligible for the refund policy.

Always read the terms, never trust a FAQ.

Tor Project a free Open Source program that may be useful for people that don't need the full functionality of Premium VPN Services.
Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.

Tor has nothing to do with TorGuard (the service being offered here)


Here are some alternative VPN services that have large selection of servers (worldwide)proxy.sh is $5 month

Setting up BT software Vuze (used to be call Azureus) to only use VPN connection (won't connect if VPN connection not available.)
Here is a tutorial of it.
http://wiki.hidemyass.com/Tutoria...hrough_VPN
Here's a tutorial for utorrent: http://wiki.hidemyass.com/Tutoria...IP_binding
(Remember to un-check make new firewall rule in utorrent settings/prefs)

Enter the interface identifier into the field next to "Bind to local IP address or interface" in the settings.
Note that the interface identifier is named different on every system, so make sure to check how exactly it is called on yours.
In their example, it is "eth15" for OpenVPN, "net2" for PPTP" and "net1" for L2TP.

Make sure the checkbox next to "Enforce IP bindings even when interfaces are not available" is checked;
otherwise it can happen that Vuze keeps downloading without using the VPN.

If the Vuze setup is done correctly, it will ONLY use your VPN connection. If you didn't login to your VPN service, Vuze won't work.

They have three services:
1) Anonymous Bittorrent Proxy $6/month
2) Anonymous VPN Service: $10/month
3) Torrent VPN Service: $5/month
I don't see a difference for these three here. What service does this deal apply to?
It was quite confusing at first. On the top nav bars if you select Anonymous VPN then it will pop open the $59.95/year service. From there you add it to your cart and enter coupon.

Quote from Royal2000H View Post :
Actually in the US, you're not required to keep logs. But you're REQUIRED to hand over logs that you do have (if the situation arises). So if you have no logs, you hand over nothing.
Just wondering...as I've read recently, the US has rather wide latitude in issuing "requests" that are not official "warrants" (that are required to obtain prior court approval)....don't know if the nature of those requests could compel a VPN provider to "turn on" logging and/or other methods of tracking beyond the minimum that they state in the TOS - Anyone know?

Rather than derail this thread...if there is a link that discusses, would be informative to SD community.

Anybody use this company? Do they have an "auto disconnect" in their client setup? I'd hate to be downloading a torrent thinking I'm protected and end up finding out the VPN stopped working leaving me exposed. The good VPN companies know this issue and address it somehow. Exposure for even one second is bad.
I'd really like to know this as well. PrivatVPN (the service I have now) has an option to auto start any program when the connection becomes secure, and stop a program if the VPN becomes unsecure. For instance, using Bittorrent, if the VPN becomes unsecure, it will close the bittorrent program.

Royal2000H is correct regarding logs, as an ISP you're not forced to keep logs but you're required to hand any over if you do keep them. Although most Datacenters will force you to keep logs to troubleshoot any abusive customers / complaints.

In short, by law you don't have to keep logs BUT you'll typically need to keep some sort of logs to please your datacenter...

Not worth it, speeds are drastically reduced. I was a member for a month and it sucked. So right now I went back to a standard seedbox that gives me free VPN to log onto it.

Exposed to what? If you're a freedom fighter in an oppressive regime, use a bit torrent client such as vuze that you can tie to a particular network interface.
Also, use only free service if you really want security. Money trail is too easy especially if it's a credit card. Even a bitcoin can be traced without much difficulty due to the small number of exchanges.

1.2 Mbps or 1.2 MBps ... 1.2 Mbps is nothing. And depending on your connection 1.2 MBps may be little too.

Hmm

TorGuard doesn’t store IP’s or time stamps on our VPN/proxy servers, not even for a second. It’s impossible to match what is not there.

BUT

TorGuard complies immediately (24 hours or less) with all DMCA takedown notices. Since it’s impossible for us to locate which user on the server is actually responsible for the violation, we block the infringing protocol in its entirety, whatever it may be – Kazaa, HTTP, Jabber, Citrix, Bittorrent, FTP, Gnucleus, eDonkey2000, etc.

This is where wording plays a big role, most VPN providers authenticate on a authentication server and disable logs on the VPN server itself. If shared IP address were used, it would be pretty difficult to trace back to you. They don't actually have to comply with DMCA takedowns and they aren't actually complying correctly with DMCA anyways. They're probably only blocking the protocol to satisfy whoever their upstream provider is.

That service has the feature your looking for automatically integrated you just have to enable it and choose which programs you want to disconnect from the program control panel, speeds are good and I rarely ever get disconnected with it, especially when I'm making use of the connection downloading/uploading. and no logs are kept on their Swedish servers, so always connect to Swedish servers. Other countries has laws requiring logs to be kept, Sweden has no laws regarding that, so there is 100% no logs.

Check the FAQ on their website to get a better understanding of how you stay anonymous.
Sweden is a member of the European Union and therefore has to follow the same data retention laws as all other EU member states. The EU has rules as stringent or more so than the US. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memb...pean_Union

A member state of the European Union is a state that is party to treaties of the European Union (EU) and thereby subject to the privileges and obligations of EU membership. Unlike the membership of an international organisation, EU membership places each member under binding laws in exchange for representation in the EU's legislative and judicial institutions.

Also, Sweden intel services monitor the net. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tita...c_database

The Titan traffic database is a database established by the Swedish National Defence Radio Establishment where call detail records (CDRs) of telephony and internet traffic and transaction data (IPDRs) concerning international telecommonications are stored. It is similar to the NSA Call Database established by its American counterpart NSA and the database that would be established according to the Interception Modernisation Programme by its British counterpart GCHQ.

I take all claims of no logging with a huge grain of salt. Several US based VPNs claim no logging but that's absolutely illegal under US law (well, if logs exist anywhere) and I'm sure they do log. Also, even if a VPN is physically located in a no logging required jurisdiction, such as the Maldives, if they have servers in the US then they have to log connections to those servers since they fall under US laws.

I was using peer-block, torrent encryption, and vprvpn. My proxy forwarded threatening letters from Ceg Tek to the effect that 2 porn movies from the 80′s that I couldn’t find anywhere else were copyright protected and they threatened to file a law suit. It was an obvious shake down, but I was quite frightened. I went to a law firm and eight hundred dollars later seem to have gotten them off my ass. Pissed off the proxy I was paying did nothing to protect me, the golden frog rolled on me like a lap dog the instant some slime-bag said boo in their direction. Makes me wonder how effective proxy’s really are? I joined EFF and have a lot more sympathy for people in similar situations. http://dietrolldie.com/
