During the month of March, we did not receive any requests from authorities. To date, we have never given out any customer data to a third party.

Below are the traffic and uptime statistics from our current data centers. The empty gap in the graphs was caused by the monitoring system being down for a while in all but one case. No actual server downtime took place.
