Private Internet Access’s long time commitment to privacy and free software makes this sponsorship a natural fit.

Private Internet Access (PIA), the leading VPN service, is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor for GUADEC 2016. Every year, GNOME users from around the world gather in a different European destination for GUADEC.

This year, the official GUADEC 2016 conference will be held from August 12-14 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology which is located in the heart of Karlsruhe, Germany; the days before and after will also feature workshops and hackfests for attending GNOME users.

Since its inception, Private Internet Access has promoted the use of uncensorable code to guarantee access to an open internet. PIA has been a member of the GNOME Foundation advisory board since 2013.

PIA, a subsidiary of London Trust Media Inc, is a long time sponsor of many events and projects borne of free software. “Private Internet Access’s long time commitment to privacy and free software makes this sponsorship a natural fit,” said Ted Kim, CEO of London Trust Media.

GUADEC has helped the GNU community gather around the successful GNOME project for over a decade and deserves commendation and recognition from this industry. PIA is committed to continued support involvement within the free and open source software community, and wishes all an eventful GUADEC 2016.
