We believe that the right to privacy is one of our fundamental Human Rights. For that matter we have built a new email service that integrates encryption into its system so that no one - not even our administrators - can access your private communication. On top of this we have a transparency report that is true to the facts - unlike Yahoo's transparency report.
And as Edward Snowden asked for it, we can state that we have never received a request similar to the one Yahoo has received and that if we were to receive one, we would oppose it in court.
In addition we can state that we simply cannot give access to email content because all mailboxes are encrypted with the help of the user's password. We only store encrypted data on our servers, and only the user can decrypt their emails when they access their accounts locally on their device.
Heads up: Any major email service not clearly, categorically denying this tomorrow -- without careful phrasing -- is as guilty as Yahoo. https://t.co/cZSDqi4a49— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) October 4, 2016
It is also very unlikely that we would receive a similar request as Germany has very strict laws on user privacy protection and bulk monitoring is simply out of the question. Even when Germany introduced data retention last year, email was explicitly exempted from this law to protect people's right to privacy.
We recommend everyone to switch immediately to our encrypted mailbox. This is the only way you can be sure that no one is scanning your emails on the server.
