Ukash Suspension

TUVPN News 9 Comments »

UKash Logo

 

Dear Customers

We bring you disappointing news from Ukash.

We have received notice that from the 4th of January 2012, TUVPN.COM customers will be unable to process payments via Ukash.

WHY?

Ukash's reason for no longer offering the service to TUVPN?

They now regard any service that blocks the IP of an online customer as being open to "facilitating malicious activity". Ukash's NEW merchant terms of use exclude businesses that offer such a service from utilising the Ukash payment processing solution.

You can be assured that we have had a rather vigorous discussion with Ukash's Chief Risk Officer. He has advised us that while they do not like to turn away our business, their Board of Directors have made the decision and it has no flexibility. We pointed out the irony of a payment processor that provides for customer anonymity, creating rules that prevent businesses offering anonymity services from using their payment service. The reply we received was, "perhaps its the combination of our two businesses that is the problem"…. We pointed out a list of other online business that use Ukash that could "facilitate malicious activity". We did not get much argument. It would seem that logic, common sense, and reason has flown out the window in this instance!

WHAT OPTIONS DO UKASH USERS HAVE?

For those customer's wishing to use UKash. We suggest you top-up your TUVPN account before the 4th of January, 2012.

After this date, you will need to use our other payment options. This includes 2Checkout where all major credit cards and Paypal can be used, and separately Moneybookers.

 

Thank you for your continued custom.

Regards,

The Team at TUVPN

VPN Providers Reap the Benefit of Web Censorship

VPN & Security News No Comments »

Online social networks may help people to organize, not virtual, but real protests in their countries. “Twitter Revolution” is becoming a new popular expression. Saying it, we immediately remember Moldova's civil unrest in 2009, Iranian election protests of 2009–2010, Tunisian revolution of 2010–2011, Egyptian Revolution of 2011… No wonder that, fearing mass riots, governments of many countries are banning popular social network services. There is web censorship in countries like China, Iran, Egypt and Libya. Many sites, including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, are forbidden.

People who want to visit blocked websites try to find the way to bypass these restrictions. One of the most popular ways among the citizens of these countries is to use a VPN connection to access restricted sites. VPN connection gives people an opportunity to browse the web anonymously, assigning them fake IP addresses. VPN services are extremely widespread, not only amongst local users, but also amongst foreigners. Alex Rico, a Spaniard who lives in China, claims that he uses VPN several times a day to visit Facebook, YouTube and his favorite blogs.

As a result, VPN service providers use internet censorships for their benefit and make money  of it. David Gorodyansky,  founder of a VPN service provider company, explains that  virtual private networks have become a "daily part of people’s lives", because "after sleep, food and water, the next most important thing is information". According to his words, most people access sites like Facebook and Twitter using VPN services in the countries where they are blocked. He estimates the potential market of people who need security and would benefit from a VPN at one billion; an additional 600 million live in regions where web content is censored.

Privacy is “Private” Again

VPN & Security News No Comments »

This week a new regulation aiming to protect Internet privacy is being discussed in the European Union. According to it, social networking sites and search engines will have to report on the private information they have collected. The European Commission is also planning to introduce the “right to be forgotten” policy, which will allow users to withdraw the personal information they no longer wish to share from different sites and social networks.

These regulations will apply not only to EU residents, but to all products and services widely-spread among European citizens. Viviane Reding, the European Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, has announced that any company operating in the EU market or any online product that is targeted at EU consumers must comply with EU rules.

To enforce the new regulations, the EU is planning to organize special comitees which will be endowed with powers to investigate and engage in legal proceedings against non-EU data controllers.

Along with legal measures, software development is going to be evaluated. This will include some privacy safeguards initially embedded into web products, for example the “do not track” option in Internet browsers. It will allow users to maintain a high level of Web anonymity.
