An anonymous reader writes from a report via TorrentFreak: VPN provider Perfect Privacy has informed its customers that two of its servers had been seized by the police in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Torrent Freak reports: “The authorities went directly to the hosting company I3D and the VPN provider itself wasn’t contacted by law enforcement. ‘Currently we have no further information since the responsible law enforcement agency did not get in touch with us directly, we were merely informed by our hoster, ‘ Perfect Privacy says. Despite losing control over two servers, Perfect Privacy assures its customers that no personally identifiable data is present on the seized hardware. Like many other VPNs, the company maintains a strict no-logging policy. ‘Since we are not logging any data there is currently no reason to believe that any user data was compromised, ‘ the VPN provider says. ‘When the Dutch police contact us with a subpoena, we work with them in a professional manner and ensure their request and our responses are in compliance with the Dutch law, ‘ I3D informs us. ‘We think with the affected customer as well, for example by making temporary capacity available so the customer does not suffer extended downtime during the investigation.'” Read more of this story at Slashdot.
