2. About the Service
The service provided by PrivateVPN is normally called VPN. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and is a way for customers to remain anonymous on the Internet by using only secure computer connections. The security is due to the Internet traffic being encrypted in such a degree that only the customer’s computer and the computer communicating with the client can interpret the data sent between computers. The traffic can still be bugged, but the person intercepting it will not be able to understand the collected information.
By paying a fixed price in advance, the customer gains access to the service for a period of either 30, 90 or 365 days depending on the extent of the customer’s order.
4. Access to the service and payment method
To access the service, the client must first open an anonymous user account via PrivateVPN’s website by providing a valid email address. A confirmation mail is then sent to the e-mail address the customer indicated containing the login information to PrivateVPN’s website. The customer must then download a VPN client from the website. When the VPN client has been downloaded and installed on the client’s computer, the customer pays the price for the requested service. As soon as PrivateVPN has received confirmation that payment has been made, the customer gains access to the service.
