You may have heard that Google’s decided to stop censoring results from its Chinese search engine. After China attempted to access the email accounts of human rights activists, Google also decided to encrypt all Gmail traffic by default.
The team behind Mises.org is also contributing to the effort to keep the internet free and secure. Here is what we’re doing for online freedom:
- Free @mises.com email accounts and free Mises Community blogs. Mises.org offers free and anonymous email and blogs.
- SSL access to the site: if you access Mises.org via SSL (https://mises.org/), we’ll try to keep you on the secure site, preventing any third party from being able to intercept or spy on your activity.
- Open content – free to mirror: The vast majority of Mises.org content is provided without any copyright restrictions, so you are free to download and redistribute our work if it is not safe or possible for you to access Mises.org directly.
- Open Source code: Mises.org code is not only open-content, but open-source, so you can verify the privacy and security of our site for yourself, or even set up a complete copy of Mises.org yourself.
- No server logs: Mises.org does not keep server logs (aside from brief security audits and diagnostics). We don’t know who visits our website, so we can’t tell anyone else.
- Access Mises.org via Tor server: Mises.org runs Tor on all our web servers. This means that Tor will automatically make your exit node the Mises.org web server when you visit this site.
- Bandwidth donated to Tor: We donate our spare bandwidth (about 10 TB per month) to the Tor project to help people facing censorship and surveillance by running Tor relays on our servers.
- Last, but not least, advocating liberty is what Mises.org is all about!
