We collect non identifiable data. Please see the `What we collect` section for more information.
Vacuum is a platform that does not aim to make a profit. We are completely dependent on user donations, and hand-selected advertisements.
Vacium displays advertisements to keep the platform online. The ads are hand-picked by our employees and thrown into a large collection of advertisements. This means that advertisements are not targeted at you. You can identify ads by the yellow border around a post. Users who want to use Vacium for advertisements must request permission from Vacium. If for any reason you see ads in other places than posts with a yellow border, you are probably infected with AdWare, or that user is ignoring our Ad Rules (please report that user).
All the data sent to and from Vacium is encrypted by a SSL certificate (that green lock in the URL bar). Vacium also encrypts al posts on the platform with one time randomly generated keys. That means that only logged in users can see the posts. For eveyone else a post will look similair to this:

If you see something like this while logged in, your device might not be fast enough to decrypt all the posts at real time. Or your key is incorrect. Please try to reload the page when you see this.
In some countries it's required by law that platforms give data on suspects. Since we encrypt all our data, it's almost mathamatically imposible to get the original data back. Since the keys we use to encrypt the data are one time and randomly generated, it would take a long time to turn this data back. However we can't be sure goverment agencies aren't on our platform. Therefor we advise to never share your real name or photos of yourself on the internet.
