Hi.

Lately I noticed that many affiliates websites are still promoting both PureVPN and HideMyAss despite their past.
Both providers have kept logs, gave data to 3rd party and lied to their customers, but they still operate normally till this day.

-> IPVanish have provided logs to Department of Homeland Security. More information here.
-> HideMyAss says on website what they are proven NO-LOG providers, but despite it they still discloses their users in transparency reports
-> HideMyAss has provided logs to 3rd parties in the past here. And there is more cases for sure, which are not public or hidden.

In my opinion this is truly disgusting and affiliate marketing is cancer. They don't care which products they recommend, it's all about money. If you are looking how to choose properly VPN provider you should check my short guide here.

It does not matter, if you do shady things or not. The problem here is that they logs and can keep them as long as they want. This means that they at least can see which domains and IP's you are visiting.

Worst case scenario - they can sell your information to 3rd party ad companies.

You can't just say "it's in the past". They lied to their customer and broke the trust. This is most important part of any VPN company. If you support such product, it means what you don't care about your own privacy at all.
