Increasing Transparency Alongside Privacy
Privacy has been and will always be a priority for SpiderOak. Everything we plan for and develop makes reference to our ‘Zero-Knowledge Privacy Standard’. That said, we are now learning more about ‘transparency’ and its importance alongside privacy.
As mentioned in an earlier post, we have been working with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) over the last few years to better understand how we can increase our efforts around fighting for the rights of our users. As we are learning, our ‘Zero-Knowledge’ privacy covers one aspect but a commitment to transparency is also critical.
As such, we have produced the following Transparency Report that covers all activity over the last year. Please review the following:
SpiderOak is committed to keeping our users informed about all the activities surrounding their data and the constant protection of their privacy. We will continue to work with the EFF and other organizations to improve our outreach and understanding so that you all – our users – can benefit from a fully transparent and open environment. To that end and has been asked previously, we do plan on implementing a warrant canary as part of our new website launch which is expected to go live in the next few weeks.
As always, we greatly value your thoughts and feedback so please don’t hesitate to send further thoughts or questions anytime.
