👀 @ProtonMail has given its Privacy policy a slight but essential refresh on Sept. 6. "If you are breaking Swiss law, ProtonMail can be legally compelled to log your IP address as part of a Swiss criminal investigation." ⤵️ github.com/ambanum/OpenTerms…

Looks like a clarification more than anything because there was the following already, under the legal framework: " Therefore, it is governed by the laws and regulations of Switzerland. Additional information about the legal framework can be found in our Transparency Report. "

There has been no change in policy, this was just a clarification. ProtonMail has always followed Swiss law, as detailed in our transparency report published since 2014: protonmail.com/blog/transpar…

"This obligation however does not extend to ProtonVPN" Why not? I guess they cant log anything even if they wanted to by design? (On ProtonVPN)

Ironically, they are actually prevented from logging IP addresses of VPN users. This is due to the laws of the same country that just compelled them to log the IP address of an e-mail user.

@ProtonMail selling privacy to your customers while doxxing them, that sounds like a scam.
