Access Now sends digital rights demands to tech and telco firms

In April and June 2016, Access Now wrote to the heads of 16 technology and telecommunications firms outlining specific steps they can take to improve their disclosures about the policy and practices they use to safeguard digital rights. 

The letters drew on the companies' positions within the Ranking Digital Rights "Corporate Accountability Index".  Access Now tailored its recommendations for each company, asking them to ensure they encrypt wherever possible, report wherever meaningful, and provide remedy whenever necessary.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre also invited the companies to respond.  Access Now's letters, the company responses and non-responses - and follow-up by Access Now are below.
