[UPDATED] June 5: Reset the Net!
All is not as it should be.
Over the past year, it has become more and more evident that our governments have been infringing on our rights to privacy online. They have no intention of changing their policies of interpreting the law in the most extreme way possible, and using all the data they can get thier hands on, warranted or not.
Today, June 5th, we take matters into our own hands. Those of us who love privacy, freedom and the Internet will collectively make our voices heard.
As a company beholden to no one but our customers, one of the things we can do is to share our resources with those who are dedicated to fighting for the things we believe in. Therefore, we have created a promo code, valid today only, to be used on new domain registrations:
50% of the price of all domain registrations purchased using this promo code will be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Fight for the Future.
Note: This is not a discount code. When applied, your shopping cart total will not change, and a “promotion” of 0% will appear.
We’ll be updating this post throughout the day, and on Twitter: @gandibar
For more information about how we fight for a free and open Internet, check out our latest blog post, Come back with a warrant!
We hope you will join us in Resetting the Net!
The Gandi team
Update 9 June 2014:
Thanks to all who made purchases using the promo code, which totaled $713, despite the low-key announcement on our part. As promised, we’ll be donating 50% of the total to EFF and Fight to the Future who are at the front lines of this fight. You guys are awesome.Tagged in Domain names
