How to properly use a VPN?

Is there any precautions I should take or should I just turn it on and thats all? I have Privitize VPN, is this a good one or should I get something else. Any free ones would be nice. I just download files and dont want to get caught.

Replace 'VPN' with 'gun,' and 'download files' with 'murder people' and you just came up with your own response.
Hope you have a good lawyer on retainer / speeddial, OP.

Otherwise as HD5830Gamer suggests, READ THE TOS before committing to anything.

You may also want to try these two threads here and here for some other VPN options, and this article for some further insight.
