Automattic’s mission is to democratize publishing, and a fully informed citizenry is the foundation of a functioning democracy. To that end, we plan to publish our transparency report every six months, summarizing the government information requests and takedown demands we have received. We hope this report is useful to our users and adds to the important public debate about the proper role of government in monitoring and policing activity on the modern internet.
Requests we receive from governments around the world to disclose information about our users.
Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.Thomas Jefferson, 1786
