DigitalOcean VPN Privacy, in light of recent political news.
This is sort of a general question to the DigitalOcean staff at large:
Given this piece of recent news:
Republican senators yesterday introduced legislation that would overturn new privacy rules for Internet service providers. If the Federal Communications Commission rules are eliminated, ISPs would not have to get consumers’ explicit consent before selling or sharing Web browsing data and other private information with advertisers and other third parties.
and following it up by saying “It is time for permanent VPN’s” .
Can anyone comment as to how DigitalOcean treats user-data from droplets that are being used as a VPN? If DO is my endpoint, then is/will my data be collected? Does DO still have a commitment to privacy in this case?
If so, then I think DO should have that clearly stated as a selling point. I have a hunch that VPN’s are about to become very popular.
