Information we collect
We do not ask you or anyone else to give us any personal information in order to use VPNcage.com. We do collect anonymised information to provide a better service to all our users – from improving our less popular pages to tracking the commissions that allow the site to operate as a free resource.
The only instance when we do collect personal information – specifically, your name and email address – is if, and only if, you submit a review of one of the VPN providers listed on our Site via the review submission forms we host.
We collect information in the following ways:

We use this information to better understand our customers and their needs in order to improve our service.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Third party websites
Our website includes hyperlinks to, and details of, third party websites. We have no control over and are not responsible for, the privacy policies and practices of third parties.
