Lightsail VPN is committed to protecting users’ privacy. Our guiding principle toward data collection is to collect only the minimal data required to operate a VPN service at scale. We want users clearly know what information we collect and how we collect and use it. We do not collect logs of users’ activity, including no logging of browsing history, traffic destination, data content, or DNS queries. We never store connection logs, i.e., any logs of IP address, connection timestamp, or session duration. Lightsail VPN team respects users’ privacy and makes every effort to protect the privacy of our users.
We do not collect users' personal information that identifies who they are. For example name, real addresses, email addresses, telephone, fax, SSN, and store information in your device.
Subject to applicable laws and for the avoidance to infringe any internet service provider, any browsing information, traffic destination, data content, IP addresses, DNS queries or other similar information relating to your inline activities transmitted by you to our servers is encrypted and cleared after the VPN “session” is closed. That said, we don’t collect any information regarding the websites you visit or any data stored on or transmitted from your device, including any data that applications on your device may transmit through the VPN network. More specifically, we have no documents, no information below under the situations of the limited connecting with your personal information and the non-collection of the websites you visit or any data stored on or transmitted from your device: We do not know which user ever accessed what website or service. We do not know which user was connected to the VPN at what time. We do not know the set of original IP addresses of a user’s computer or the temporarily assigned network addresses.
If anyone would like to access to or try to compel us to release users' information based on any of the above, we can not supply these data cause the data don’t exist.
