Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
Our mission is to provide free access to the sum of all human knowledge. We believe that protecting user privacy and defending against censorship are essential to the success of that mission. Every year, we receive requests from governments, individuals, and organizations to disclose information about users or to delete or alter content on our projects. Some are legitimate. Some are not.
The purpose of this transparency report is to shed light on the requests we receive and how we respond to them.
All information belongs to everybody all the time. It should be available. It should be accessible to the child, to the woman, to the man, to the old person, to the semiliterate, to the presidents of universities, to everyone. It should be open.
