The only instance when we do collect personal information, specifically, your name and email address, is if, and only if, you submit a review of one of the VPN suppliers listed on our Site via the review submission forms we host.

Upon specific request from the supplier, we may also share with them the email addresses of all participants that entered their prize draw. We will only transfer your submitted personal data outside of the EEA if you’ve won a prize, and the VPN supplier awarding the prize is located outside the EEA. Under no other circumstance will your name and email address be used or shared by buyvpnsoftware.com.
