Take Action
vfi_arrow_sm.png Tell Congress: Support Email Privacy, Pass the LEADS Act
Email Congress today to voice your support for the Law Enforcement Access to Data Stored Abroad Act (LEADS Act). If enacted, this bill will provide digital communications with the same privacy protections as letters sent by mail. Legal support for digital privacy will foster growth and innovation in cloud computing. Take action by writing a letter and tweeting at your representative!

We believe that emails and other customer data stored in the cloud are personal information that deserve the same privacy protections as analog information, such as letters sent by mail. Governments need to follow appropriate legal processes to ensure privacy protections. Learn more and sign our statement of support.
