Cookie Policy

Last updated: 26 October 2020

This cookie policy (the “Cookie Policy”) sets forth PrivateVPN Global AB’s (collectively, “we”, “us”, “our”) view on cookies and explains what they do, how we use them and why we sometimes need to store them. It also describes how you can disable these cookies. For information about our processing of your personal data, we refer to the Privacy Policy available on our website, https://privatevpn.com (the “Site”).


Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. There are two types of cookies: session-based and persistent-based cookies.

Session cookies exist only during an online session. We may use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you while you are logged in to your account at the Site.

Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity.

In addition, we might also use clear GIFs (web bugs, web beacons) on our Site. These are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the movements of web users between pages and websites. Unlike cookies, which are cached on a user’s computer, clear gifs, web beacons and web bugs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of a single pixel.

Disabling Cookies

You can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser (see your browser’s Help for how to do this). Each respective browser’s Help toolbar usually describes how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit. Disabling cookies can also result in disabling certain functionality and features of our Site. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not disable cookies.

Why we are using cookies

We use cookies for a few general purposes, such as:

  • To allow our Site to function correctly.
  • To understand how our Site is functioning and to inform any improvements in performance and our services.
  • To enhance your experience on our Site and provide functionality, meaning for example that you don’t have to re-enter your details each time you engage with our Site or to record what purchases you have made on our Site.
  • To gather relevant data that helps us deliver marketing and advertising content relevant to your interests.

Third party cookies

We may engage third parties, such as Google Analytics, to track and analyze non-personally identifiable Site data. These third parties may use various tracking technologies to provide certain services or features on the Site, including targeted online marketing or relevant on-site messaging. These third-party services use cookies to anonymously collect data and allow them to recognize your computer or mobile device each time you visit our Site. No personally identifiable information is collected by these cookies. The anonymous data they collect is kept separate from the personal information about you as a user that we collect.

Changes to the Cookie Policy

We reserve the right to amend this Cookie Policy to comply with changes made to the relevant data protection legislation or our processing of personal data. If we do so we will change the effective date in the beginning of this Cookie Policy. If you continue to visit our Site or use our Service after the amendments, then you agree to the revised Cookie Policy. The current version of the Cookie Policy is available on the Site.
