Mozilla — the makers of the Firefox browser that you’ve come to know and love — was recently humbled and honored to receive an award. The Ponemon Institute (considered the preeminent research center dedicated to privacy, data protection and information security policy) recently asked more than 100,000 consumers in the U.S. to name and rate organizations they believe are most committed to protecting the privacy of their personal information. When all the numbers were crunched, and the results were announced, Mozilla was honored to have been named the most trusted Internet company (ranked highest in the Internet & Social Media industry category.)
Not only that, but Mozilla made it onto the top 20 list for ALL companies, no matter the industry. Can we get a big “woot woot!”
But seriously, we don’t want to toot our own horn, we just want to thank you for your trust in us. What we do, we do for you. We know how much you value your privacy. We build our Web sites and design our products and features with your privacy in mind. Our privacy policies explain in detail what our different sites and products will and won’t do with your information. They tell you what is collected, when it is collected, and for what reason it is collected. We want to be transparent and open about our privacy practices.
For more information on the study, you can read about it on the Mozilla blog. In the meantime, just know that we will continue working for you, and thank you for the vote of confidence!
