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.

Love my PIA VPN... fast speeds as well. But got mine here when it was on SD for $31 for a year. They are also worth a consideration, but the deal is dead. Usually pops up every so often.

PIA = PrivateInternetAccess.com
Have you noticed a slowdown a recently? I'm thinking they might be at over capacity or something.

Nothing on my end, actually, even faster for me as I just upgraded my cable modem to DOCSIS 3.0... it was a long over due upgrade.

I've been with Torguard since january and would recommend them.. Great service and support.

The real reason I chose them is because they have OpenVPN that works in Beijing. Torguard and astrill so far are the only vpn companies I've found that work in china. Everything else is usually blocked.

If this is so important to you, you should have a lawyer look at it.
What good would that do? It's not what they say, it's what they do. The TOS is no guarantee of that. HMA said in their TOS that they don't log. Then someone asked for their logs and it turns out they had logs to turn over. So how does your recommendation of reading the TOS do any good?

They stated they don't log vpn activities, nothing about connection logs (different server all together).

If TOS is deemed to be legally binding and they're found to be in violation of that, you can sue for breach of contract and become a rich man.

It was even a little less than I expected:

Unlimited Bittorrent Proxy (05/01/2013 - 04/30/2014)
Promotional Code: slickdeals50 - 50.00% One Time Discount $-23.48 USD
------------------------------------------------------
Sub Total: $23.47 USD
Credit: $0.00 USD
Total: $23.47 USD
That's for their proxy service, not the VPN. While the proxy does help, this is not full protection. VPN runs $59.99 with 50% taken off that.

Their ordering system is pretty convoluted for only offering a few services. It should be easier than they make it since I was getting confused on their choices, but I suppose that may be what they are hoping for.

The VPN checkout should look like this

Anonymous VPN - Pro - VPN
» VPN Features: Shared Static IP (FREE)
$59.99 USD
[Edit Configuration] [Remove]
Subtotal: $59.99 USD
50% One Time Discount: $30.00 USD
Total Due Today: $30.00 USD
Total Recurring: $59.99 USD Annually

It definitely looks like a one time deal, which is sad, but these services come and go so its not like something else will show up next year if they don't want to honor the pricing next year.

Tell that to the guy that HDA turned over the logs about. I think you've been watching too much TV. Any TOS will have the ultimate out for the provider who wrote it. Why would they do otherwise?

Then what's the point of advertising that a user will be "anonymous"?

Also, they said and still say they only log the times of the connections. Only the times, nothing more.

"We only log the times you connect and disconnect from our service. We do not log what activity you get up to behind our VPN service, such as what websites you visit and who you talk to. For more information go to our privacy policy."

Yet from the article I linked to earlier. They apparently logged much more than that. Otherwise how would they have been able to backtrack activity to one specific user?

Pretty easy... They assign a unique private/public ip address to each user, they just cross reference when the illegal activity happen with who was logged into that ip address.

If they used shared ip address then it would be a different story.. still traceable but much more difficult.

Have used TorGuard for the last 8 months. I'll be renewing my service once my year is up. Some private trackers block your connection when downloading while connected so speeds can crawl but public trackers don't have the same issue. I can stand the "slower speeds" and try to use Canadian servers for faster speeds.

Also have setup the VPN to work on my Ubuntu system although not nearly as smooth as in Windows using the TorGuard portable program (can load it on a thumb drive and run).

**EDIT**

I also use different VPN servers when I stream Netflix due to some content being available in other countries outside the US, example, Dexter is available for streaming using a Canadian VPN server where in the US Dexter is not available for streaming.
