Reports from London Raise Questions about RIM’s Privacy Policies
- Understand the laws governing data privacy and freedom of speech, including hate speech, in the jurisdictions where the company operates.
- Have clear policies in place to identify the circumstances in which the company will disclose user information or place restrictions on free speech. These guidelines should include the requirement of a legal process and a commitment to interpret government demands and jurisdiction in ways that minimize their impact on users’ freedom of expression and privacy.
- Inform users of the circumstances in which their data will be turned over to third parties or their communications will be censored.
