Not everyone’s privacy is respected, but we respect yours. Joanna Ewart-James, Freedom United.

Dear David,

At Freedom United, we know all too well how many people in slavery are denied their basic right to privacy. Exploited live-in domestic workers may be forced to sleep in bathrooms or kitchens without any private space of their own. Trafficked laborers may be forced to sleep in overcrowded rooms, sharing mattresses with other workers. Survivors have reported being monitored by their traffickers on trips to the hospital – or even trips to the bathroom – to prevent revealing their situation or attempting escape.

We strongly believe that everyone’s privacy should be respected. As such, we have made updates to our Privacy Policy to ensure we continue to uphold our values of transparency and consent.

With the new data protection laws coming into force today in the European Union, we have updated our policies. We have not changed how we process your information, but rather the way in which we explain how we use this data and how you can manage it.

Here are the key updates to our Privacy Policy:
  • Transparency: We have edited the policy to make it easier to understand what personal data we collect and how we use it.
  • Control: We’ve explained the control you have over your information and how we communicate with you. This includes an updated email preferences page, so you can more easily opt in or out of communications.
  • GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation): We’ve added a section regarding the rights of users located in the European Union, as required under the law.

You can read the full Privacy Policy here. Have questions? Please don't hesitate to contact us.

We are so appreciative of your support as we work to ensure everyone's privacy is respected and protected. 

In determination,

Joanna and the Freedom United Team
