I recently started using Norton 360 again. I enjoy the technology, such as Sonar and built-in Firewall. But this question I have is regarding Norton VPN privacy on Windows. It is included for free with this package and works great.

I see they publicly state "no log policy". Which could be vague. I've read some of their privacy policy, but didn't really get what I was looking for. Does anyone know (no guesses please), how much data collection Norton gathers, that could be used to identify you?

Note: I know there may be safer choices (no biased opinions about other products please) such as Mullvad or IVPN, bare-metal servers, 5 eyes (etc), but I'm asking in a 'basic sense', how trustworthy is Norton VPN?

I plan to use it for general surfing, 24/7, Windows PC, civilian use. Nothing illegal, but I still care about privacy.

Here's Norton VPN's product specific privacy policy. It lists the data it collects:
The data collected would be enough for Norton to identify your specific device, but nothing related to your browsing activity.

If your only concern is preventing ISP data collection, and you're happy with the service Norton VPN provides, I say continue using it.
