Ashrise not only doesn't slow you down, but it actually helps improve the speed of your torrents by sharing peers and distributing the load of your downloads.
All data about peers is gone the second they leave the swarm. We store no personally identifiable data, only download progress and country codes.
Compare you torrents the the Ashrise average to see how your ratios, seeders and speed stack up.
Country-level filtering on all reports so you know where you're trending.
