We here at PeekYou are very proud to announce our brand-new partnership with Reputation.com. This partnership will give our users, and Reputation.com’s clients, more choices with, and control over, the privacy, sharing, and promotion of their online information. This announcement is being made as PeekYou and Reputation.com are working to not only provide for users opportunities to effortlessly and automatically opt-out of websites, but also to enhance their online presences by spreading the word about themselves, should they so choose. By allowing consumers to be better capable of controlling their information (public and private), in any way that they see fit, PeekYou believes users’ online lives will be altogether more secure and satisfying.
PeekYou remains committed to an open and transparent web, which is why we developed a Privacy Pledge to explain to users exactly how and where we find their information, and how their individual footprint online is linked. “A lot of people who share information on the web simply don’t understand exactly who can see it and where it can go,” says Raj Ajrawat, General Manager at PeekYou.com. “By working with companies such as Reputation.com, we hope to give users more choices and educate them on how the information that they share, knowingly or unknowingly, can spread across the web.”
Over the next few months, PeekYou will be developing a deeper relationship with Reputation.com. During that time, we also hope to initiate an industry round-table to discuss issues such as online privacy, sharing information online, and consumer identity on the web. We believe this partnership will only bolster PeekYou’s already strong commitment to providing our users with a free and open search engine, and one that only finds publicly available information about individuals which those individuals themselves want to be sharing. Ultimately, our goal remains the same as it has always been: to re-index the web around people.
