Security Practices

Your personal information is protected for your privacy and security. ZeroTier, Inc. safeguards the security and confidentiality of the data you send us with physical, technical, and managerial procedures.

Network Meta-Data Collection

The ZeroTier peer to peer network makes use of a network of servers called root servers. These run the same code as regular ZeroTier nodes but are designated as anchor points in the network. They are operated by ZeroTier, Inc. and assist peers in locating one another to establish direct connectivity, as well as providing traffic relaying services for peers that cannot directly connect. (Relayed traffic is encrypted and can't be read by us.)

These servers are able during the course of their normal operation to see the IP addresses of ZeroTier users and may also be able to gether information about which ZeroTier devices are communicating to which other devices (but not the content or duration of communication). This network meta-data may at times be surveyed or gathered by ZeroTier, Inc. for use in improving our services or providing technical support to customers.

Network controllers hosted by ZeroTier, Inc. (such as those that power can gather network meta-data in a manner similar to root servers.
