BUC Tools is a subscription based service with complete focus on providing a safe Internet experience. The subscription pays for bandwidth, server hardware, blacklists, Web hosting, some licensing fees, firmware updates, and ongoing technical support. BUC Tools does not host advertisers, dos not sell any information, does not track or monitor your information outside of what's noted below.

 Each day our Network Engineers receive an e-mail with a list of customer customer WAN IP's and how many DNS queries were made from that IP.  Not what was queried or when, just the total number which looks like this:

The Query number is what we use to monitor licensing, as noted here

BUC Tools may keep up to three weeks of daily Internet activity logs on the servers, for back logging and trouble shooting purposes.

BUC Tools support does not have access to your BUC Tools appliance unless authorized to do so for troubleshooting.
