Government requests

Any request or demand by a government (including the US government) for the divulgement of information resp. data will be diligently reviewed by our legal counsel. The only legitimate reason for our beginning to collect personal data would be the existence of a legal warrant or a court order, which would require us to do so in connection with a specific user, who is suspected of such a serious crime that such a violation of his or her privacy would be justified.

We have the right to protect the privacy of our users by not collecting any personal data. These policies are important to us and we act accordingly.
