    Apparently NOW...if you have your HMA set on US ip and also uploads/download torrents - get this - YOU GET A WARNING FROM HMA TO STOP ILLEGALLY SHARING FILES!

    HMA is being summoned by Anti-Piracy Agencies..not their fault!

    Here is the email below:

    Dear XXXXXXXX,


    We have received a file sharing complaint and the date, time, and IP address provided matches the date, time, and IP address your VPN account was in use. Illegal file sharing is against our terms of service and we cannot ignore breach of copyright complaints, as such we kindly ask you to stop sharing said files to comply with this request. Please note repeated offences may result in permanent suspension.

    Title: MOVIE TITLE
    Infringement Source: P2P
    Infringement Timestamp: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Infringing Filename: WAS A MOVIES

    Why did I receive this complaint?
    Anti-piracy companies automatically monitor public bit-torrent trackers usually for US IP addresses that are involved in illegally sharing copyrighted material. These companies then send a file sharing complaint to the underlying ISP behind the IP address, and this ISP then forwards the complaint on to us. We are legally required to forward on the complaint to the suspected customer.


    Are you monitoring my traffic?
    We do not log or monitor your internet traffic, we have no evidence that suggests you have downloaded the specified material, only the date/time you were using our service.


    Is my information being handed over to the complaint company?
    No.


    Regards,
    HMA! Team
