We limit the collection of your data. We only collect data that is required to maintain the services by Gulf Secure VPN. We collect the following data related to your use of Gulf Secure VPN:
We collect information related to which Apps and App version(s) you have activated. Knowing your current version of the Apps allows our Support Team to troubleshoot technical issues with you.
We collect information about whether you have successfully established a VPN connection on a particular day, to which VPN location, and from which country/ISP. This minimum information helps us provide technical support, such as identifying connection problems, providing country-specific advice on how to best use our Service, and enabling Gulf Secure VPN engineers to identify and resolve network issues.
We collect information about the total amount of data transferred by a given user. Although we provide unlimited data transfer, if we notice that a single user pushes more traffic than thousands of others, thereby affecting the quality of service for other Gulf Secure VPN users, we may contact that user for an explanation.
We ensure that we never log browsing history, traffic destination, data content, or DNS queries. Therefore, we do not know which user ever accessed a particular website or service. Should anyone try to compel Gulf Secure VPN to disclose user information based on any of the above, we cannot supply this information because the data doesn't exist.
We collect anonymized app diagnostic data, which include crash reports, usability diagnostics, and VPN connection diagnostics. We use this data in our network operations tools to help optimize network speeds and to let us identify problems and areas for improvement related to specific apps, VPN servers, or ISPs.

Servers are housed in data centers with strong security practices.
