We want you to understand what information we collect, what we don’t collect and how we collect, use and store information.
Snowpack Invisibility Services are so powerful that they can be used for criminal activities without any capability to trace them. Snowpack does not accept this possible use of its Services and will then log your activities under your FreeSnow and OneSnow. We do and will collect logs of your activity, including logging of your Snowpack browsing activity, traffic destination, and DNS queries if your Plan is FreeSnow or OneSnow. In that case, we will be able to provide logs and data to the competent jurisdictions if Snowpack is legally requested to do so. We will also store connection logs (i.e. your IP address, your outgoing Snowpack Servers addresses, connection timestamp, or session duration, in this case). It will be possible for you to check in real-time the content of your logs, as a transparency feature.
Our guiding principle toward data collection is to collect only the minimal data required to operate a world-class Invisibility Service at scale. We designed our systems to not have sensitive data about our customers and never be able to see any data in the most advanced Plans; even when compelled, we cannot provide data that we do not possess.
Snowpack collects personal information that you provide to us directly through the Site. We require that you provide personal information, such as an email address and payment information, in order to establish a Snowpack account, and so that we can email you, collect payments from you, and respond to support queries that you initiate. The specific information collected varies depending on the payment method you choose.
Snowpack uses your email address for the following reasons:
We collect minimal usage statistics to maintain our quality of service. We may know, for example, that our customer John had connected to our New York location on Tuesday and had transferred an aggregate of 823 MB of data across a 24-hour period.
We’ve engineered our systems to categorically eliminate storage of sensitive data. We may know THAT a customer has used Snowpack, but we never know HOW they have used our Service. We stand by our firm commitment to our customers’ privacy by not possessing any data related to a user’s online activities.
With your permission, we collect anonymized app diagnostic data, which include crash reports, usability diagnostics, and connection diagnostics, using Snowpack to create even more anonymity. We use these data in our network operations tools to help optimize network speeds and to let us identify problems and areas for improvement related to specific apps, servers, or ISPs. The information we receive is fully anonymized and cannot be tied back to individual Snowpack users (i.e., we do not store which user sent which data, and we do not store user IP addresses). If you opt in to share this information with Snowpack, we will collect the following anonymized information:
Snowpack’s core mission is to keep your information private and secure. In service of this mission, Snowpack’s headquarters and registered place of business is in France.
Should we receive a valid legal order from the relevant national court, it is important to note that Snowpack does not collect any IP addresses, browsing history or DNS queries that could be used to identify any specific user for the DarkSnow and ProSnow Plans, but does collect them for FreeSnow or OneSnow Plans.
Snowpack uses best-in-class physical, procedural, and technical security with respect to our offices and information storage facilities to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of information. Access to user information is restricted to staff who require such access to perform their job functions.
While we believe these systems are robust, it is important to understand that no data security measures in the world can offer 100% protection.
Snowpack uses third-party services such as Google Analytics and Adwords. Cookies from such services are used to collect data for statistical reports. For example, we may generate reports regarding the amount of time users spend on the Site and the number of users who visit a particular page.
Snowpack uses Google AdWords remarketing to show advertisements on third-party websites (including Google) to users who have visited our Site. We may show such users advertisements on a Google search results page, or on a site in the Google Display Network.
The Services are intended for adults aged 18 and above. If you believe your child has provided information to us, please let us know immediately.
You can exercise your rights under the GDPR to access, transfer, correct, delete, or object to the processing of your personal information by contacting us at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.

With Cloud-based solutions rise, homeworking and the need for agility, Enterprises have massively increased entry points in their network, creating multiple hacking opportunities. Therefore, how can retail business protect themselves against this threat?
Snowflakes don’t carry sender and receiver information, nor they carry the routing path. Sender and receiver only know half of the routing circuits until the meet-me-point. Therefore, attack surface is hugely reduced, counter-balancing WAN entry points multiplicity.
Reduced attack surface
Better WAN protection
Manufacturing companies must implement capabilities everywhere in the world, including in countries where their IP can be hacked. Therefore, how can they grow their business whilst securing their Intellectual Property ?
Each Snowflake is unreadable as such. As a result, Enterprises can safely share their most critical data between HQ and remote countries: even if hackers look at it in the network, they won’t be able to read the data.
Intellectual Property secured
Safely develop business in attractive but unsecure markets
R&D investments cost Billions of Euros and require strong interactions with external partners. Therefore, how can an innovative company ensure their most sensitive projects or knowledge are not copied ?

IBAN transfer fund fraud cost banks 250M€ / year in France only. Due to GDPR and bank secrecy, banks can’t share the fraudulent IBANs and protect themselves against fraud. Therefore, how can banks work together to reduce fraud?
Snowpack anonymization removes regulatory critical information and makes data compliant. This enables banks to create and share databases. Banks can check fraudulent known IBANs and create a new level of fraud protection.
Cost savings against fraud
Defense organizations must be able to transfer critical data with absolute certainty they can never be identified. However, they can’t always control the environment they operate in. Therefore, how can these organizations provide secure communications wherever and whenever needed?
Thanks to its anonymization process, Snowpack ensures that both users’ identity and data shared are fully invisible even when information is sent using the most simple and remote internet connection available.
