You may have heard about the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law that goes into effect today, May 25, 2018. This law helps safeguard your privacy and the personal information you share with websites like Mondoweiss.

While the law specifically covers European citizens, Mondoweiss is committed to protecting the privacy of all users. We have introduced a new GDPR compliant privacy policy, which can be found here, and you may have also noticed the cookie notification banner that appears periodically at the bottom of our website.

Increased privacy and data transparency are critically important to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions. Anyone who reads our site periodically knows that we need stronger democratic institutions now more than ever.
