I recently read about Trust Connect in a VPN review, in fact if you have spent any time around VPN and looked at the information that is clearly out there all over the web about Comodo you’d realize this isn’t nonsense being said here…
[b]Comodo Trust Connect states: “We have logs of all system connections and will provide them to the proper authorities upon request”.
This means that even if before a court order, simply on request they turn over logs of all your outgoing connections.
Further: “Any information transmitted to Comodo through the site by a visitor is considered non-confidential and may be used by Comodo in its sole discretion.”
This means that your credit card information and all your personal data submitted at the site may be used by Comodo in ways you do not know. This is anything but privacy.
“Personal information is collected from customers only after obtaining consent, which is obtained when customers are prompted for information when subscribing to the services, by using a Comodo website, downloading a product, or requesting further information.”
Comodo collects personal information, stores that information and together with logged connections and IPs would provide that data upon request. Comodo does not pretend to have a privacy agreement to protect its clients.
To be completely secure, users should consider a VPN provider whose corporate headquarters are off shore to begin. Many jurisdictions are impervious to US and UK court orders. Comodo that is prominently located in the UK is not secure by definition.
Now for my say in the matter go to the TrustConnect website and see if you read anything about protecting user privacy and from what I have seen there is none, so this leads me to believe this information I have read above is true in every respect and that Comodo doesn’t really care about our privacy and just talks about it with just these words alone on their Home page of the site, 'Help keep your information private and secure with Comodo TrustConnect.
I think this is really pathetic, after all why do you think people want to use VPN in the first place? It is to protect their privacy and have some anonymity and feel safe and secure online and when you have a company like this merely talking about privacy as a sales pitch on their home page then this is really sad and should be the signal for you to see that sends up red flags to make you see it’s just a sales pitch and nothing more. In my eyes this doesn’t inspire much of a vote in confidence in using this service.
In FACT if Comodo does not put any information on their website stating exactly everything in detail over their policy on privacy as it regards to end-users then you should not use their service!
After all Comodo why should we use your service when you tell us you are offering privacy and it seems to not be the case?
