    4. If you register, we will request mandatory and, where applicable, non-mandatory data in accordance with our registration form.

We keep a temporary log of connection data for troubleshooting purposes, which includes a randomly generated user ID and is securely deleted every few hours. This randomly generated user ID cannot be linked to you. We have deliberately and consistently chosen not to log all other data in order to limit our legal liability. However, we log the Connection status and bandwidth consumption to bill you properly and maintain a high quality of service. All usage data is anonymized and not linked to your real, public IP address. We do NOT log your VPN sessions, browsing behavior, the websites you visit, or any other activity related to your VPN connection.
