Privacy policy

At OrbVPN, we stand behind our commitment to user privacy and security. When you use our OrbVPN Apps and Services, you’ll share some information with us, which we use to provide and improve those Apps and Services, send notifications and updates, troubleshoot, and to support our free product through advertising. Our goal is to be upfront about what we collect, how we use it, and whom we share it with, and therefore, this privacy policy ("Policy") describes how the personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") you may provide in the "OrbVPN" Application ("Apps" or "Application") and any of its related products and services (collectively, "Services") is collected, protected and used. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your Personal Information and how you can access and update this information. OrbVPN will never collect, store, log, or share any browsing activity, your true IP address, including no logging of browsing history, traffic destination, data content, or DNS queries, and we always delete your true IP address after your VPN session is closed. Since we only collect the minimal usage statistics needed to maintain the quality of our service, and do not store users’ personal information, we cannot, willingly or unwillingly, share user information with third-parties or government authorities - because this data does not exist. We never associate your email, true IP address, username, or unique mobile ID with your browsing information or online activities when you are using OrbVPN.

Use and processing of collected information

In order to make our Apps and Services available to you, or to meet a legal obligation, we need to collect and use certain Personal Information. If you do not provide the information that we request, we may not be able to provide you with the requested products or services. Any of the information we collect from you may be used for the following purposes:
  • Request user feedback
  • Improve user experience
  • Enforce terms and conditions and policies
  • Protect from abuse and malicious users
  • Respond to legal requests and prevent harm
  • Run and operate the Apps and Services
Processing your Personal Information depends on how you interact with the Apps and Services, where you are located in the world and if one of the following applies: (i) you have given your consent for one or more specific purposes; this, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of Personal Information is subject to California Consumer Privacy Act or GDPR ; (ii) provision of information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof; (iii) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which you are subject; (iv) processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us; (v) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. Note that under some legislations we may be allowed to process information until you object to such processing (by opting out), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases below. In any case, we will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Information is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract. We may also obtain information from our affiliates and third parties. Here are a few examples: Advertisers may let us know you installed a new app or game so we can determine whether we showed you an ad for it. If you interact with one of our advertisers, they may share information with us to help target or measure the performance of ads. You can learn more about these types of ads in our Support Center.

Managing information

You are able to delete certain Personal Information we have about you. The Personal Information you can delete may change as the Apps and Services change. When you delete Personal Information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised Personal Information in our records for the duration necessary to comply with our obligations to our affiliates and partners, and for the purposes described below. If you would like to delete your Personal Information or permanently delete your account, you can do so by contacting us. What do we do with the information we collect? For the detailed answer, go here. The short answer is: Provide you with an amazing set of products and services that we relentlessly improve. Here are the ways we do that:
  • Develop, operate, improve, deliver, maintain, and protect our products and services.
  • Send you communications, including by email. For example, we may use email to respond to support inquiries or to share information about our products, services, and promotional offers that we think may interest you.

Control over your information

We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools. Because your privacy is important to us, we may ask you to verify your identity or provide additional information before we let you access or update your personal information. We may also reject your request to access or update your personal information for a number of reasons, including, for example, that the request risks the privacy of other users or is unlawful. Revoking permissions. If you let us use your information, you can always change your mind and simply revoke your permission by changing the settings on your device if your device offers those options. Of course, if you do that, certain services may lose full functionality. Advertising Preferences. We try to show you ads that we think will be relevant to your interests. If you would like to modify the information, we and our advertising partners use to select these ads, you can do so in the app. Communicating with other users.

Disclosure of Information with Third Parties

Depending on the requested Services or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested, we may share your information with your consent with our trusted third parties that work with us, any other affiliates and subsidiaries we rely upon to assist in the operation of the Application and Services available to you. We do not share Personal Information with unaffiliated third parties. For example, if another user allows us to collect information from their device phonebook—and you’re one of that user’s contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that user’s phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from our affiliates and third parties. Here are a few examples: Advertisers may let us know you installed a new app or game so we can determine whether we showed you an ad for it. If you interact with one of our advertisers, they may share information with us to help target or measure the performance of ads. You can learn more about these types of ads in our Support Center. We will disclose any Personal Information we collect, use or receive if required or permitted by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. As always, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our services.

Retention of information

We will retain and use your Personal Information for the period necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.
