PrivadoVPN Copyright Policy
PrivadoVPN provides transitory digital network communications as a service provider under the copyright laws of Switzerland.
Please note that due to the technical features and the nature of the PrivadoVPN services, including the encryption of communications sent via the services and the ephemeral nature of transmissions initiated at the direction of individuals using them, it is generally not possible for PrivadoVPN to take down specific content, or block access to specific content, from those services that are reported to be infringing.
Also, identification of users and subscribers of the PrivadoVPN services by reference to their alleged IP address does not allow us to identify a specific user that is purported to be engaging in copyright infringement due to how the service works technologically.
We do not maintain records of which users accessed specific online content in connection with an apparent IP address.
If you are a copyright owner, or have the authority to act on behalf of a copyright owner, you may report a claim that a party is infringing your copyrighted material via our services by notifying PrivadoVPN’s designated copyright agent at:
Privado Networks AG
