Ensuring Privacy and Freedom of Expression

Ensuring Privacy and Freedom of Expression

Story from Domini Impact Investments.

As data becomes increasingly valuable and central to our society, some companies have access to sensitive information, such as our location, purchasing history, or call data, or are requested by governments or law enforcement to provide user data. Domini joined an Investor Statement on Corporate Accountability for Digital Rights, and then engaged with AT&T and Deutsche Telekom on their policies and practices on freedom of expression, privacy, requests for data, and transparency with users, as evaluated by the organization Ranking Digital Rights.

Both companies provide vital services and telecommunications access, and through our engagements, we seek to better understand how they are protecting freedom of expression for users, including what they do with sensitive user information. We encourage them to have clear policies, governance and oversight, accountability, and human rights considerations on how they gather, use, and share customer user information.
