Internet Privacy

What?

Internet privacy consists of privacy over the media of the Internet: the ability to control what information one reveals about oneself over the Internet, and to control who can access that information. Many people use the term to mean universal Internet privacy: every user of the Internet possessing Internet privacy. Internet privacy forms a subset of computer privacy. There are many level of internet privacy. Regular Internet users may succeed in achieving a desirable level of privacy through encryption of communication and careful disclosure of personal information. On the other hand, some people desire much stronger privacy. In that case, they may use Internet anonymity to ensure privacy.

Why?

Internet accounts tend to be terribly un-private. In many cases, ISP could accurately stand for "Internet Surveillance Project". Almost every ISP can monitor, store, and share your web wanderings and email with many "authorized persons" without your knowledge. In many countries, ISPs are explicitly monitored by government agencies for 'security' reasons. Web sites use many techniques to profile your internet usage, including the infamous use of cookies. Finally every server or router you communicate with (directly or indirectly) as logging facilities that can store information related to your internet activities and this indefinitely

How?

This server is a node operating inside a network of computers offering anonymity services which securely privatize your web browsing, email and other internet activities. When using those services, an encrypted anonymising overlay is added on top of the normal internet account at the average Internet Service Provider [ISP]. You can find a description of the services available on this host in our services section. For more information, in general, on how to use those services check out our links section.
