- The software is provided “AS IS”. It did not hurt us, yet, and even worked as expected and there are even tests which prove it. Though we cannot guarantee it will work as you expect.
- We collect only the first two bytes of the IP-address. This means that we only know which country you live in. That's fair for the European privacy rules. For me as well.
