  • Who is using a service like this should be aware of the fact, that everything he/she is doing can be snooped by the company offering the service. This might be preferable compared to being snooped by the Chinese government or to not reach a website at all. But I would always prefer Tor (http://www.torproject.org/), although it is a bit slower. Also when using Tor, some operator could snoop the connections, but he cannot tell who and where you are then.
