Everyone is entitled to basic rights and freedoms, whoever and wherever they are, online and offline. These are set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We respect these rights. Not just for our people, but those who work for our suppliers, partners and contractors as well as people and communities who use or might be affected by our products and services. Wherever they are in the world.
We know our digital services play a positive role by helping people exercise their rights and freedoms. But we’re not complacent. We recognise there are balances to strike between things like protecting our customers’ rights to privacy, keeping people safe and enabling free expression online. As a global communications company, we can have a big impact on these rights. We take this responsibility very seriously.
