Who We Are
The Mozilla privacy team works to build a consistent approach to privacy that puts users in control. This page highlights what we do, how we can help you, how to get involved, and how to find us. Privacy reviews are needed whenever Mozilla (customer, contributor, user, employee) data is involved.
