Demanding More Transparency & Accountability

By: Yahoo Public Policy

Today, a broad coalition of stakeholders calls for surveillance reform through “The Day We Fight Back”, and collectively voices opposition to government surveillance online without appropriate transparency and accountability.

We at Yahoo will continue to protect the privacy of our users and to ensure our ability to defend it. This includes continuing to advocate strenuously for meaningful reform around government surveillance, demanding that government requests be made through lawful means and for lawful purposes, and fighting government requests that we deem unclear, improper, overbroad, or unlawful. For more information, see the principles that we and other tech companies recently issued calling for government surveillance reform.

We know that many of our users feel as strongly as we do about these issues, and we encourage everyone to learn more about them. Make your voices heard. Sign up for news updates, install a widget on your Tumblr, or send a tweet with the hashtag #TheDayWeFightBack.
