Happy International Data Privacy Day!

In 2009 the U.S. Congress decided to recognize Data Privacy Day for years in the future (nationaldaycalendar.com).  We appreciate a day to promote privacy.  We are in the works to support encrypted email on this website.

Data Privacy Day "is celebrated every January 28 and is an international effort to promote the importance of data privacy" (taken from https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/current-activity/2017/01/24/Data-Privacy-Day-Events).  It started when Convention 108 was signed on January 28, 1981; this was "the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection" (taken from https://staysafeonline.org/data-privacy-day/about/).  Enumerated rights are not always enforced.  Cisco and Intel are leading sponsors (https://staysafeonline.org/data-privacy-day/about/).
