WHY ONLINE PRIVACY MATTERS


  • "Without online privacy, we are subject to all of our actions being collected and analyzed in databases. Personal data can be used to affect our reputations; and can be used to shape our behavior and influence our decisions. Our personal information is something we should be able to share on our own terms with choice."

    Denise G. Tayloe CEO, PRIVO
