At Bored Cat, we understand that activists and independent journalists or whistle blowers are often subject to harassment or threats to their safety. We also understand that average, everyday citizens who are trying to “think differently” may not want their personal information spread across the web, especially in the face of large data mining operations where a users identity is sold to advertisers. We recognize that the right to privacy and anonymity is vitally important to a free society and the freedom of expression.
The information on the website is for the purpose of education, awareness, and information only. It should not be used to commit criminal acts or harassment.

Any articles published on this website that might relate in some way to activities or people prosecuted by the law enforcement are posted for the sole purpose of news publishing and information purposes only, and are not intended to incite, support or encourage illegal acts.

How we protect your information
We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information and data stored on our Site.
Sensitive and private data exchange between the Site and its Users happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.
While we make every effort possible to insure your privacy on our servers, there are still ways that it can be violated. We can’t guarantee that nobody will hack into our servers and steal your data or that somebody isn’t listening in on your communications with us.

We can’t guarantee that our web host and ISP isn’t listening in or handing over your information.
Ultimately, privacy is your responsibility. If you are concerned about the above threats to your privacy and ours, then consider taking additional measures to protect it such as encrypting your hard drive, encrypting your emails, and using proxy systems like Tor.
Sharing your personal information
