Invisible Infra, Invisible Services and Invisible Access DarkSnow (option no-log)
Invisible Access (except DarkSnow option no-log)
Snowpack Invisibility Solutions 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 Solutions and will then log your activities under your FreeSnow, OneSnow, RedSnow and DarkSnow. 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, OneSnow, RedSnow or DarkSnow except option no-log. 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.

- How to Contact Snowpack
Snowpack collects four types of information:
- Information related to your account (“personal information”)
This information is collected for the purpose of administering your Snowpack subscription and includes your name, email address, and payment information, which you submit on our order page when you subscribe for the Services.
- Aggregate Apps and Snowpack connection summary statistics
Snowpack collects minimal information about usage in order to maintain excellent customer support and quality of service. These statistics include with FreeSnow or OneSnow Plans: destinations of traffic, DNS queries, and IP addresses.
- (User-controlled option): Anonymous app diagnostics, including crash reports
App diagnostic data, which include crash reports, usability diagnostics, and connection diagnostics, are anonymized and cannot be tied back to individual Snowpack users. This feature is similar to a “send bug report” option. Users can specify in the settings menu of any Snowpack App whether to send these data to us.
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:
- To send emails related to payment
- To provide links to our Site, including password reset emails.
- To send you updates and announcements.
- To communicate with you about your services or respond to your communications.
- To send marketing information, such as Snowpack offers, surveys, invitations, and content about other matters in connection with Snowpack (“Marketing emails“). You may choose to not receive Marketing emails by following the opt-out procedure described in these emails.
Aggregate Apps and Connection Summary
In order to maintain excellent customer support and quality of service, Snowpack collects the following information related to your usage:
- Apps and Apps versions
We collect information related to which Apps and Apps version(s) you have activated. Knowing your current version of the Apps allows our Support Team to troubleshoot technical issues with you.
- Successful connection
We collect information about whether you have successfully established a connection on a particular day, to which server location, and from which country/ISP. This information assists us in providing technical support, such as identifying connection problems, providing country-specific advice about how to best use our Service, and to enable Snowpack engineers to identify and fix network issues.
- Aggregate sum of data transferred (in MB)
We collect information regarding the total sum of data transferred by a given user
Anonymous App Diagnostics, including Crash Reports (can be turned off by the user)
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:
- Diagnostic information about if and how a connection attempt failed.
- Speed test data.
- App diagnostics, including crash reports and usability diagnostics, also without any personally identifiable 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 (option no-log), Invisible Infra and Invisible Services Plans, but does collect them for FreeSnow, OneSnow, RedSnow and DarkSnow (logged version) Plans.
Snowpack keeps records of any correspondence, questions, complaints, or compliments you submit to us through our Site or Services, along with our response. Depending on how you contact Snowpack, we may collect your email address and any additional information you provide to us. Having full correspondence records enables our staff to provide the best possible customer support experience.
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.
