We maintain an Issues List, and always welcome comments so that we can find out what concerns you most regarding your #privacy.

Please feel free to comment here or DM us with your most-important privacy issues. We will add them to our Issues List whenever possible.

We use this list to Identify, Delegate and Solve (IDS) our most pressing needs.

Thanks!

@Are0h Heh. I wonder how they'd react if you then steered the conversation to point out how during the 1950s, companies were required by law to manage their own waste, but they fought against that law and as a result, Coca-Cola moved away from glass bottles in favor of plastic that was cheaper to make and far more expensive to recycle.

Would you help us with an item on our Issues List?

When we want to share helpful product suggestions, what is the a way to link to those items that would make you comfortable?

It's important to note that some of the linking methods may not be private.

Please share any other ideas as comments.

Thank you!

Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?
