3. Registration and Use of Privatix

If you choose Privatix and install the product Privatix made available by us, we kindly ask you to provide us with a valid e-mail address. We will generate a password for you which will be sent to you via e-mail. There is an option to use Privatix without email registration, in this case, we make a temporary user based on your unique user data (DeviceID, HWID, UIID), to identify you later. 

When using Privatix, you will have the possibility to select the access point or the server location you want to use in order to send an encrypted request to a website. By default, we display the server closest to you first. As a general rule, this is the fastest connection. However, if wished, you can choose another server. The decision is all yours. 

When choosing an access point please note that only this server will process your IP address and request for the webpage you would like to access (the "Targeted Website"). 

4. Recording and Revocation of the consent

We do not store information regarding the location you selected for the encryption of your IP address when you chose the server location for the use of Privatix, because data minimization is the intent and purpose of Privatix.
