Note: An email account isn't the same than VPS, since any user can use
POP3 to download all data to local computer, instead leaving it on
server. Even Riseup is not a surveillance service like Gmail which is
tracking their users every time; however a VPS contains
sensible/permanent data like a personal computer; and since they could
offer VPS located in USA only, it is critical privacy issue for our
distro. Different case if Riseup offers a VPS in privacy respecting
countries like Gandi that is a French service (France is included in The
Fourteen Eyes too), however they offers VPS located in Luxembourg which
is a privacy respecting country. :)
