Win back your digital independence with Mandriva

Filed under
MDV

Recent news regarding United States governmental agencies collecting and monitoring data across the Internet were pretty well known for years among the tech community. The details and the specific activities, such as the PRISM project might not have been matters of common knowledge though. It remains nonetheless true that any organisation or individual who is connected to the Internet -which means a lot of of them on the Earth- needs to be able to keep both its privacy and the ownership of its data. It is not just a matter of national interest and sovereignty for countries. It is not just a political matter that might be solved between the United States and Europe for instance. The right to privacy and data ownership is a fundamental right, on the Internet and elsewhere.

There have been extensive discussions about this topic inside Mandriva, and we felt we needed to stress that these concerns are extremely important to us and should be the same to you.

Mandriva has committed itself to protecting its customers’ privacy and digital independence for years.
