Let us be frank. There are numerous commercial providers of PPTP and OpenVPN services.
Our VPN Service is technically not different from many others. In other important respects it is however different. It is a matter of trust, credibility and integrity.

Whom do you Trust?
A VPN Service is supposed to bring the user enhanced security, privacy and liberty. Yet, in many cases there is very little information about the corporations or entities or persons behind the VPN service. Yet, they are often trusted with handling the entire Internet traffic of their customers.
Integrity is run by 5th of July Foundation, founded by veteran Internet entrepreneurs with a long track-record of standing up for freedom of communications and privacy. Its goal is not to maximize profits while obscuring who is behind the service, but instead to stand up for certain values as declared in the Charter of Foundation and make trustable services available according to those principles.
The Founders and the Board of Trusees of the Foundation consist only of members with a very high level of Integrity.
Our Integrity VPN Service is designed with Privacy in mind. We do not log traffic or IP numbers. We don’t have to do it according to Swedish legislation and hence we do not.
Integrity VPN is currently only sold through Internet Service Providers (ISPs) – the service is not offered to direct customers. The ISP cannot see the Internet traffic of their customer behind the Integrity VPN servers. We, in turn, cannot know who the ISP customer that uses our VPN service is. This design provides doubled privacy.
5th of July Foundation keeps track of legislation concerning provisioning of Internet services, freedom of expression, privacy and related areas. We believe it is a human right to communicate without being registered or tracked. We make sure never to infringe on Privacy unless the law makes it absolutely necessary. The Foundation’s Chairman has written extensively about surveillance, including think tank research reports on legislation in EU and Sweden.

Free Speech jurisdiction
5h of July Foundation is based in Stockholm, Sweden. Wikileaks explored Sweden for locating its HQ, since the country may have the longest tradition in the world of constitutionally protected Freedom of Expression and legislation that protects sources. Wikileaks also chose Sweden’s oldest independent ISP, Bahnhof, as the primary site for the global #cablegate release since it was known to never be bullied by political pressure. All three founders of the 5th of July Foundation have a background from Bahnhof.
