How Mozilla protects your privacy

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
We received from Mozilla a long letter, for short they were telling us about how they strive to protect our privacy while we are using their browser. I can't stop asking myself, do this has anything to do with the announced Google change of privacy policy and terms ?
Here is the mail, I'll let you jump into conclusions :-).


You are receiving this email as part of our yearly outreach for International Data Privacy Day. Your privacy is important to us and we'd like to share how we work to protect it.

At Mozilla, we try to give you as much control and collect as little information about you as possible. We are guided by six core privacy principles that help remind us that your interests come first and that we exist to stand up for you in a world where choice and control are too often at risk.

1. No Surprises
Sure, most of us like surprises, but not when it comes to what's happening with our data. At Mozilla, we only use and share information about you for your benefit and as spelled out in our notices. What you get for your birthday should be a surprise. What we do with your data shouldn't be.

2. Real Choices
In the beginning, the Web was simple connected, open, safe. But as it grew, users faced new challenges, including a lack of choice. At Mozilla, we strive to give you options and make your choices clear. For example, we use Web analytics to help make our sites more useful, but if you don't want your session visit information on our websites to be collected and analyzed, you can use our opt-out mechanisms.

3. Sensible Settings
Some of us like to adjust settings, but others don't. At Mozilla, we strive to make it easy for you by establishing default settings that balance safety and user experience. For those who want more, you can adjust those settings and there are also plenty of add-ons that you can use to get even more control over your online experience, interactions and information.

4. Limited Data
Many people don't realize how much information is collected about them by websites and then used as a business asset. We do and we think it's wrong. We believe the Web is a shared public resource to be cared for, not a commodity to be sold. At Mozilla, we collect and retain the least amount of information necessary and we always try to put information in non-personally identifying forms when we can.

5. User Control
At Mozilla, an important part of our mission is to help people understand and control their personal information. For example, Mozilla Firefox offers a Do Not Track feature that when enabled tells advertising networks and other websites and applications that you want to opt-out of tracking for purposes like behavioral advertising. Also, you can always change your email communication preferences by clicking on the unsubscribe links at the bottom of each email you receive from us.

6. Trusted Third Parties
It takes a lot of work to bring you our many websites, products and services, but Mozilla can't take all the credit. We work with a number of third party service providers who understand our commitment to privacy and are under a written agreement to honor it. We don't take chances with your data and we don't let others take chances with it either.

In short, privacy is an important part of who we are and your privacy really matters to us. Privacy protection is well grounded in Mozilla's principle-over-profit mission to build an Internet where the individual is respected and has choices. We approach privacy from the perspective of putting you in control and we advocate for your ability to shape the future of the Web. We are different by design because we answer to no one but you.
