I'm not sure how your VPN is set up, but the concern I've seen expressed with some VPNs is that they are hosted in data centers, so even if the VPN service doesn't keep any logs, a subpoena to the data center may reveal logs kept by the data center that the VPN service didn't even know about (Even if the VPN was truthful that they kept no logs). So at least with some VPN services, just because the VPN service doesn't keep any logs doesn't necessarily mean there aren't any.

Well in the case of my VPN company not logging, i can promise you thats a 100% fact... Its my company
So far we generate about 15,000 penetration attempts per day. Haven't been hacked yet.
Skiddies will be skiddies.
1. EarthVPN does NOT log any VPN usage or user activity. Neither us nor third parties are technically possible to match an IP address to an account.
On EarthVPN defence, a representative claimed in the lowendtalk forums that although they do not keep logs, Dutch police had seized one of their servers with a court order and they suspected that the datacenter was keeping IP transfer logs to protect against Distributed Denial Of Service attacks which is how they managed to track down this person.
Even when a VPN provider claims there aren't any logs, you have to view that claim skeptically as this example shows.
