Security Policy

All of us have different ideas about privacy that might apply to these practices. Ask 1,000 people to define privacy, and you’ll get 1,000 definitions. Privacy is personal, it’s cultural, and means different things to different people and societies. Privacy can be:

  • our ability to control access to our personal information and activities.
  • about having the freedom to conceal aspects of ourselves from others.
  • about the individual freedom to choose what things we are willing to share and with whom we share them.
