Symlex VPN is committed to protecting your privacy. We want you to understand what information we collect, what we don’t collect, and how we collect, use, and store information. We do not collect logs of your activity, including no logging of browsing history, traffic destination, data content, or DNS queries. We also never store connection logs, meaning no logs of your IP address, your outgoing VPN IP address, connection timestamp, or session duration.
Our guiding principle toward data collection is to collect only the minimal data required to operate a world-class VPN service at scale. We designed our systems not to have sensitive data about our customers; even when compelled, we cannot provide data we do not possess.

Symlex VPN collects three types of information:
(i) Information related to your account (“personal information”)
This information is collected to administer your Symlex VPN subscription and includes your name, email address, and payment information, which you submit on our order page when you subscribe for the Services.
(ii) Aggregate Apps and VPN connection summary statistics
Symlex VPN collects minimal information about usage to maintain excellent customer support and quality of service. The section below specifies in detail what information we collect. These statistics never include anything about what the user did with the VPN: no data about the contents or destinations of VPN traffic, no DNS queries, and no IP addresses.
(iii) (User-controlled option): Anonymous VPN connection diagnostics and crash reports
VPN connection diagnostics are anonymized and cannot be tied back to individual Symlex VPN users. This feature is similar to a “send bug report” option. Users can specify in the settings menu of any Symlex VPN App whether to send these data to us.
Symlex VPN collects personal information that you provide to us directly through the Site. We require that you provide personal information, such as an email address and payment information, to establish a Symlex VPN account and so that we can email you, collect payments from you, and respond to support queries that you initiate. The specific information collected varies depending on the payment method you choose. To minimize the amount of personal information you submit to us, we recommend that you use Bitcoin payments when subscribing to our Service. But unfortunately, currently, we do not receive the payment through PayPal, BitPay, or Paymentwall.
Symlex VPN uses your email address for the following reasons:
We ensure we never log browsing history, traffic destination, data content, IP addresses, or DNS queries. Therefore:
Should anyone try to compel Symlex VPN to release user information based on the above, we cannot supply this information because the data doesn’t exist.
To maintain excellent customer support and quality of service, Symlex VPN collects the following information related to your VPN usage:
We collect information about which Apps and app version(s) you have activated. Knowing your current version of the Apps allows our Support Team to troubleshoot technical issues with you.
We collect information about first-time login dates and times so that we know the exact activation time of your pin. And this information is accurate for the users who purchase credentials from our resellers or retail shops. We also collect information about whether you have successfully established a VPN connection on a particular day (but not a specific time of the day), to which VPN location (but not your assigned outgoing IP address), and from which country/ISP (but not your source IP address). This minimal information assists us in providing technical support, such as identifying connection problems, providing country-specific advice about how to best use our Service, and enabling Symlex VPN engineers to identify and fix network issues.
We collect information regarding the total sum of data transferred by a given user. Although we provide unlimited data transfer, if we notice that a single user pushes more traffic than thousands of others combined, thereby affecting the quality of service for other Symlex VPN users, we may contact that user for an explanation.
We collect minimal usage statistics to maintain our quality of service. We may know, for example, that our customer John had connected to our New York VPN location on Tuesday and had transferred an aggregate of 823 MB of data across 24 hours. John can’t be uniquely identified as responsible for any specific behaviour because his usage pattern overlaps with thousands of other Symlex VPN customers connected to the exact location on the same day.
We’ve engineered our systems to categorically eliminate the storage of sensitive data. We may know THAT a customer has used Symlex VPN, but we never know HOW they have utilized our Service. We stand by our firm commitment to our customers’ privacy by not possessing any data related to a user’s online activities.
With your permission, we collect anonymized analytics data used for network diagnostics. We use these data in our network operations tools to help optimize network speeds and to let us identify problems related to specific apps, VPN servers, or ISPs. The information we receive is fully anonymized and cannot be tied back to individual Symlex VPN users (i.e., we do not store which user sent which data, and we do not store IP addresses).
If you opt-in to share this information with Symlex VPN, we will collect the following information:
Symlex VPN’s core mission is to keep your information private. We are not at all provoking any of its users to use the app for any illegal activities. Customers are using this software on their own liabilities. You should always abide by the law of the country you are residing.
Symlex VPN keeps records of any correspondence, questions, complaints, or compliments you submit to us through our Site or Services, along with our response. Depending on how you contact Symlex VPN, we may collect your email address and any additional information you provide. Complete correspondence records enable our staff to provide the best customer support experience.
We use two third-party platforms for Email Sending: Mailchimp for emails and Facebook Messenger for Live Chat. When you correspond with us using these platforms, your correspondence records, including your name and email address, are stored in their systems. They utilize modern security practices and HTTPS encryption.
Symlex VPN uses best-in-class physical, procedural, and technical security with respect to our offices and information storage facilities to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of information. Access to user information is restricted to staff who require such access to perform their job functions.
While we believe these systems are robust, it is essential to understand that no data security measures can offer 100% protection.
Servers are housed in data centres with strong security practices. None of these data centres requires us to collect or store any traffic data or personal information related to your use of VPN Services. If any data centre were to ask us to log such data, we would immediately cease operations with said data centre and find alternative options.
Even if a government were to physically seize one of our VPN servers and manage to break its disk encryption, there would be no logs or information that would tie any individual user to a particular event, website, or behaviour.
