Increasing Transparency Alongside Privacy – 2013 Report

As we stated in our Transparency Report in 2012, privacy continues to be at the root of all we do at SpiderOak. Every new product and feature is designed to fit tightly alongside our ‘Zero-Knowledge’ privacy commitment. And we continue to understand how transparency plays a role in overall privacy.

In our ongoing efforts to stay on top and aware of this ever-changing landscape, our work with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) continues to keep us better informed and aware of what we can do when fighting for the rights of our users.

Given all this, we have reproduced a Transparency Report for that covers all activity over the last calendar year – from April 2012 to April 2013. The report is as follows:

SpiderOak Transparency Report

We are proud to stand behind our commitment in keeping our users informed of any and all activities involving their data and the constant protection of their privacy. Our relationship with the EFF and other organizations will always improve our outreach and understanding so that you – our user – will benefit from a fully transparent and open environment. As always, we greatly value your thoughts and feedback so please don’t hesitate to send further thoughts or questions anytime.

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 Transparency Report

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.
