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. At no time will TorGuard's database of users ever be sold to any entity for the purpose of marketing or mailing lists.

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.

Bind to local IP This option allows you to bind Azureus to a specfic IP address and thus a (virtual) network device. This may be useful if you have multiple internet connections.

anybody know how long the deal will last? I want to do some research before providing my cc.
It would have been great if they had a 24 hr or even 12 hr test drive account.

Quote from BobCoxner View Post :
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.
The service I'm with only owns their Swedish servers and their other servers are leased from another server provider. So being that they only own the servers in Sweden, They don't necessarily have to abide by U.S rules? In their Terms of service, they say only the email you signed up with and your username you created are kept logged, they said no such I.P/time logging is done on any of the Swedish servers, but all their other servers say they do keep I.P and time stamp logs for a month.

There is no logging law in the United States. Your upstream provider might have their own sets of rules but there is no law in the US that says you have to log connections if you're an ISP.

I don't see what the drama is with torrents, downloading torrent isn't illegal, there are plenty of legal torrents out there. It is up to the individual what they choose to download. They can't tell what you're downloading, so if your ISP gives you the shake down tell them to kiss your ass. Cool

Yep, as someone else said earlier in the thread, the US only mandates that you release whatever logs you do have in case of an investigation, but if you don't log then you simply don't turn anything over.

My computer networking quit working after installing this TorGuard software. Got this yellow (!) on my networking icon on the bottom right. No internet access.

Lucky its on my virtual machine.

Window troubleshooting says "The DNS server isn't responding" ???
That happened to me too. A system restore fixed it. I'm not sure what caused it yet and I haven't had a chance to reinstall it and try again.

Jeremy @ TorGuard: You never commented on the logging questions, TOS seems to state no logging but others have found posts indicating 24 hour logging. Which is it?
If you read their TOS, it said...
http://torguard.net/terms.php
Subscriber understands that TorGuard.net reserves the right in its sole discretion to enforce breaches of this Agreement. Failure to comply with the present Terms of Service will results in a material breach of this Agreement, and may result in one or more of these possible following actions:
• Issuance of a warning;
• Immediate, temporary, or permanent termination of access to TorGuard.net with no refund;
• Legal actions against you for reimbursement of any costs incurred via indemnity resulting from a breach;
• Independent legal action by TorGuard.net as a result of a breach; or
• Disclosure of such information to law enforcement authorities as deemed reasonably necessary.
TorGuard.net reserves the right to take any other actions necessary to enforce and protect its rights. If you find that your TorGuard.net account has been suspended, then you may contact: support@torguard.net


First, how can they enforce breaches of this Agreement if they don't know what the user is doing? That means they must have some kind of real time monitoring.
Take any action means if anyone doing serious crime like child porn, terrorist activities, DoS attack, mass spam, or people that sharing thousands of movies and songs, etc, they will do anything necessary to help government/FBI, etc catch those guys. They may not collect log now. But if they try to catch people like bombing terrorist, they will do anything necessary to help catch those guys probably including start collecting log and monitor their servers at real time, etc.
