It’s been nearly a year since I joined as Chief Privacy
Officer. It seems like my first day was just yesterday, and
when I look back on everything our team has accomplished in
the area of consumer privacy and data security, it’s no
surprise that the time went by so quickly.
You may have seen some of the changes we have made to our app
on the front end. For example, we introduced a new signup
process that includes a very short, readable explanation of
the data we collect as part of our service and how we use it.
For those who are interested in additional information, we
added a “How We Use Your Data” page that illustrates (literally) our approach to data
collection and usage. We put more descriptive language in our
information as we can to users about our approach to data
collection and usage. But that’s not all.
We have also been hard at work behind the scenes! While we
always had an approach that secures user information in
transit and at rest, we thought we could do better, and took
on projects that focused on data minimization, streamlining
access controls, and improving backend processes. Our
capstone? Undertaking a comprehensive security audit that
prepares us for ISO certification!
We’re proud of the work we’ve done so far, and from
experience, we know that our work on privacy and data security
is a journey. Where will this journey take us? We expect to be
ready to re-open our service for European consumers and are
already hard at work to enhance consumer choice as we prepare
for the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) to go live.
We hold firm to the belief that you should be in the driver’s
seat when it comes to making smart choices about sharing your
personal information. To that end, we are intently focused on
building tools that allow you to easily exercise this choice.
Your opinions matter. Your voice matters. And we want to hear it.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions or would like to join in on the
conversation about data privacy. We will continue to hold true
to our commitment to be transparent with you today and always.
Thank you for using Unroll.Me.
