Electronic Frontier Alliance Principles

As a member organization of the EFA, we believe that technology should support the intellectual freedom at the heart of a democratic society. In the digital age, that entails advancing:

Free Expression:
People should be able to speak their minds to whoever will listen.

Security:
Technology should be trustworthy and answer to its users.

Privacy:
Technology should allow private and anonymous speech, and allow users to set their own parameters about what to share with whom.

Creativity:
Technology should promote progress by allowing people to build on the ideas, creations, and inventions of others.

Access to Knowledge:
Curiosity should be rewarded, not stifled.

We uphold these principles by fighting for transparency and freedom in culture, code, and law.
