Assumption: You refer to Freedom software by Zero-Knowledge Systems, Inc.

And now: Questions, questions...

[0] Zero-Knowledge Systems Inc. seems to be Canada based.
           Does the Canadian government allow it to sell "sophisticated
           cryptography" to non-US countries? If not, the Freedom software
           would become less interesting, wouldn't you say?

[1] Can one trust their Freedom Network[tm]?

[2] How can one be sure that ZKSI does not collect the data one sends
           through their software, unless one gets the program source?
