  • (1888PressRelease) January 19, 2016 - MEGGEN, SWITZERLAND - Golden Frog, a company that fights for online privacy and security, and Free Your Data, a political crowd campaign advocating for "data sovereignty," today announced their partnership. Golden Frog will offer Free Your Data supporters a special discount for their VyprVPN personal VPN product, while Free Your Data will feature Golden Frog on their site as part of their campaign.

    "We've noticed an alarming trend of free providers in the privacy industry, and the technology industry as a whole, offering products that track, collect and sell user data," said Sunday Yokubaitis, president of Golden Frog. "Customers should demand transparency from their providers, so they can choose how to protect their data. We're thrilled to partner with an organization who shares our values, and to continue our fight for online privacy with Free Your Data."

    Golden Frog is a global service provider committed to developing applications and services that preserve an open and secure Internet experience for users around the world. VyprVPN by Golden Frog encrypts users' Internet connections and enables them to thwart the data snooping and inspection of Internet traffic that is regularly practiced by third parties. By encrypting the "last mile" (the connection between the user's device and the Internet backbone), users can better ensure their online privacy and open up an uncensored and secure Internet, no matter where they are in the world. Golden Frog owns the hardware at each of its 50+ VPN server locations and manages its own network, resulting in fast, reliable connections.

    "We share the same vision as Golden Frog - we, the citizens, can and must be the defining force shaping our new digital future," Ali Jelveh, Co-founder of Protonet GmbH, points out. "Technology must be used in our interest, whether it's using VPN technologies such as VyprVPN or pushing for transparent access to what companies know about us."

    "It's about getting back our data sovereignty,"Elke Jacob of Free Your Data, adds.

    Free Your Data is an episode based political crowd-campaign launched in March 2015. Together with a petition on the global platform, Free Your Data fights for a new law demanding data sovereignty for free citizens. More than 62,000 people signed the petition so far. The heart of the campaign are the citizens who want to know what personal information is collected by companies and what they do with it. The net political spokesman of all big parties support Free Your Data.
