Protecting our online privacy

Hi there!

Our privacy is up for a vote this week.

In an attempt to address cyber threats, the US House will be voting Thursday on a bill that would allow for the unlimited sharing of personal data amongst and between private companies and the government, without a single safeguard for privacy or civil liberties.

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act is a serious threat to our privacy, and if passed could have a ripple effect across the world. But there is still time to stop it. We need to convince technology companies supporting CISPA that protecting us against cyber threats does not have to come at the expense of our privacy.

I've already signed the Access petition urging these 30 companies and organizations to stand up for their users and drop their CISPA. And I think you should too. Add your name to the petition by clicking below:
