Epic's proxy server is situated in America (!)

You are in India, that's fine.
But I'm not happy with your choice for a US based proxy server.
We all know by now that American IT companies are forced to act in accordance with the Patriot Act.
In short, all traffic via their servers can and may be tapped.
Maybe pick a proxy server somewhere in a "privacy-safe" country?

What's your opinion about this?

Re: Epic's proxy server is situated in America (!)

Great point & thanks!  We know our partner spotflux and they respect users' privacy, and we do understand there is a lot of concern over US-based services at this point.  The US doesn't have data retention laws which is good, but the Patriot Act is a concern. 

We would like and are open to offering proxy servers in other countries.  We don't have any immediate plans, but we hope to have more options to offer in the future.
