AVG Releases One-Page Privacy Policy and Challenges Industry to Follow

Understanding AVG’s new privacy policy
September 14, 2015

We’ve released an updated one-page policy that’s designed to be simpler, shorter, and easier to understand.

AMSTERDAM – September 14, 2015 – AVG® Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the online security company™ for more than 200 million monthly active users, announced today that it has released the One-Page Privacy Policy first pledged by AVG CEO, Gary Kovacs, in his Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 keynote speech.  AVG’s new Privacy Policy can be read at http://www.avg.com/privacy-new and will take effect on October 15, 2015, providing AVG’s users time to read and understand it before it becomes effective.

At MWC, Mr. Kovacs promised that AVG would develop a simple privacy policy that can communicate on one page the basics of what data AVG collects and how AVG uses it.  He challenged the industry to follow suit by offering the same transparency with users. AVG’s launch of its One-Page Privacy Policy affirms AVG’s commitment to its users and their fundamental right to control how their information is being used.

“Without privacy online, there can be no security; and without security, there can be no trust,” said Harvey Anderson, Chief Legal Officer, AVG Technologies. “At AVG, we value our customers and believe they should know exactly how their information is being used by us. Therefore, we have updated our Privacy Policy to make it simpler, clearer and more transparent – representing only part of a continual evolution to improve AVG user choice and control.”
