Overall, the speeds didn’t disappoint.

FastestVPN doesn’t log your data due to their no-log policy. But from what we have found out, they do record users email ID that you have used during sign up. But that may not be a big of a problem if you use a pseudo/fake ID to register. Furthermore, FastestVPN has its headquarter in Cayman Island which is a British Overseas Territory and is outside the jurisdictions of UK. This means there are no particular laws concerning data retention, so FastestVPN is not obligated to log your data.
