In any case, there's no such thing as a "no-log" VPN...
All it takes is for the police to raid the provider's house or a court request, and the VPN will give it all away.

The only one that has really proven this is Mullvad, but it's often blacklisted because they don't always renew their IPs...

I was reading the Privacy policies of Nord (current subscription) as well as Mullvad's, and the list of Nords compared to Mullvads was an eye-opener. Needless to say, I bought a 3-month subscription to Mullvad, which I'm running right now. Speed is very good, ping 39, download ~280- 320, upload 11.09 compared to Spectrum's default ping 12, download 369, Upload 11.17.

With Ram only servers a simple cold restart will flush them although you have to take into consideration how many servers they have and how often they are restarted, this does not mean the company itself is trust worthy though with that information, I do not know much about mullvad, im just simply stating that trusting blindly is kinda silly. Do some research and learn about them if possible as they do not present much information, which makes this even more difficult to trust.

It states here in the spoiler that the company remains separate from its owner, would a user care to wager on that, i certainly wouldn't.

It's like Ziff Davis with all that he owns (VPN providers @15:12 of the video) and has his fingers into, then we're supposed to believe and trust all of their (PCMag) reviews as being totally unbiased?

Exactly, there is more of that going on than meets the eye. Glad you did research and seen.

Don't just take the word of that website though.

Im just going to leave this here, something to contemplate with any of the services. The bold underlined speaks volumes of what companies can do and not divulge. Research, and be careful what you trust software wise, its as important as the links you click.

After merging with Kape Technologies, Private Internet Access became one of many privacy software products offered by the corporation. Along with Private Internet Access, Kape also offers Cyberghost, Intego, Webselenese and Restoro. Previously Crossrider, a UK-based company, Kape Technologies changed their name in 2018 in order to go under a type of rebranding and "escape a strong association to the past activities of the company" through which they had issues with their previous image being associated with traffic manipulation. After purchasing various other VPN services, Kape Technologies purchased Private Internet Access in order to "aggressively expand their footprint in North America
