We believe that privacy is necessary for personal autonomy, that privacy is a neccessary precondition for the development and preservation of our individual self. This power to selectively reveal oneself to the world requires strong cryptography which lies at the core of all our products.
We believe that freedom is necessary for an open society. You have the right to freedom of opinion and expression online without interference or surveillance. Freedom leads to enhanced expressions of creativity and original thought. And we’re determined to protect that right with everything we do.
We believe that freedom requires net neutrality. Internet service providers and other controlling authorities should enable access to all content equally. A free and open internet is essential for the spread of ideas, innovation, entrepreneurship and protecting freedom of speech.
We believe that privacy requires strong security. Privacy is not simply a matter of choosing what to not share with the world. With the advent of cloud computing, corporations and governments are intent on invading our privacy and we need to employ strong encryption on all networks that we don't control.
