    • Hey, believe us, you really don’t need to worry. Crossrider will only help our family grow bigger and stronger, just wait and see. We won’t change, we promise! Just watch us. PS: did you see the latest message from Robert concerning the acquisition?

      • Though I’m not user “Anticross”, I’d like to add a question concerning this specific topic. I do not question Robert’s good intentions. Nor do I question that there may be many benefits.

        But what about the legal situation? Legal questions can be rather complicated, and when several countries are be involved, that’s even more true.

        Crossrider is mainly based in countries like United Kingdom and Israel, it seems, with its principal office in the UK. These countries do not seem to have privacy laws as good as Romania, and they could certainly legally request any company based in their respective countries to track users and to provide some information about them.

        Now, Crossrider owns Cyberghost. Cyberghost says that this does not have any legal implications when it comes to privacy, because Cyberghost is still a Romanian company under Romanian law. This may be true. But as I said, legal issues may be complicated and controversial.
        So, my question is: Are you sure? Can you be sure?


        • Hi there! We understand your concerns and we are here to clarify them with 100% certainty. So here is why you shouldn’t worry about the Crossrider acquisition: CyberGhost is still S.A. in legal terms, which means it fully operates in Romania and it abides by local laws. This means that when we get a legal notice about a person’s online activity, we cannot provide the online history of that IP, because we do not store logs. So it really doesn’t matter in what country Crossrider operates. Therefore, to answer your question, we can really be sure. 🙂

  • I can’t understand why you pretend of being so privacy-friendly as time as you NOT EVEN HAVE HTTPS in place in your website. And brag about “free proxy service offerring encryption” ?? Is that a bad joke or what ??? Pffff …. => => . At least you could use a htaccess directive to load automatically some https version of the website …
