How private is this group?

The conversations on this list should be kept private. They are meant to shared only among Global Voices Community Council members. Please do not publish emails or forward them, unless you have the writer’s explicit permission to do so.

Access to this group is limited to relevant Global Voices community members, but this does not guarantee the total privacy of our communications. By using Google Groups, we allow our list conversations to be stored on Google servers. In addition, each member of the group can be individually vulnerable to hacking, which could allow an attacker to see and potentially expose group conversations.

With this in mind, please do not use this list to transmit any sensitive information that could put you or another person in danger if it were to become public. If you're unsure about the safety implications of a piece of information you want to share, contact the group manager or a member of the core team before sharing.

See the Google Terms of Service for information about their policies.

As administrators of this list, Global Voices also has access to subscription data about list members. To learn about how Global Voices handles personal data, read our Privacy Policy.
