Privacy Stance

Our commitment to privacy.

Over the past few years there has been an increased demand for privacy tools and services. At System1, we believe everyone has the right to control their data, protect their privacy, and be safe online. We therefore see it as our duty to bring privacy solutions to market that can benefit from our capabilities.

We actively develop, invest in and acquire privacy services and products. For our owned & operated sites, including those we have acquired or in which we have invested, we practice a comprehensive approach to privacy, including:

  • Honoring or improving upon the privacy policies of companies in which we acquire or invest
  • Expanding feature sets and improving the user experience of products without compromising user privacy
  • Marketing products to wider audiences while maintaining our commitment to user privacy
