NEW YORK, December 9. /ITAR-TASS/. Eight American internet giants, such as Google and Microsoft, proposed to limit the extent of authority of the American government online in order to put an end to surveillance over internet users on a global scale. The New York Times reported that this proposal was written in an open letter addressed to the President and US Congress.
The letter reads “We urge the US to take the lead and make reforms that ensure that government surveillance efforts are clearly restricted by law, proportionate to the risks, transparent and subject to independent oversight.”
Internet giants believe that the US government infringes on the citizens’ rights to privacy online. Internet companies complained that they’re often forced by the government to disclose personal data of their clients. At the same time, corporations stress that they’re taking all possible measures to prevent leaking users’ personal information; however, they admit that the American government can gain access to this data without informing the companies.
