Internet users concerned with privacy, cyber crime, and unauthorized data collection can now take control of their personal information with Private.me, which launched today. Private.me is a secure hub of online privacy tools that keeps an individuals personal data private through a patent-pending process that encrypts and fragments users data, and then distributes it to a geographically dispersed system of servers. This system prevents user data from being accessed by third party marketers or any unauthorized data collectors.

Private.me gives individuals authority over their personal data, putting them in the privileged position of controlling when, how, and by whom their information can be accessed. A simple dashboard lets individuals set and change their access permissions. The solution ensures that no single entity can access a users personal information without the users explicit consent.

Private.me is a first-of-its-kind platform that captures search data and ensures that it is never available to any other person or company, unless the user gives authorization, said Dr. Stan Stahl, Chief Information Security Officer for Private.me. The site is designed to put control over who can access data, and how they can use it, into the hands of individual consumers, who are the people who care most about safe and responsible handling of their information.

Stahl, a cyber-security expert whose thirty-five years experience includes securing White House teleconferencing and nuclear missile communication networks, works with a prestigious team of Private.me experts, which is addressing the most pernicious privacy infringements plaguing Internet users today.

Individuals can access Private.mes flagship privacy solution, a free Internet search service, through a search bar on the companys homepage. The search experience on Private.me is unique among existing search anonymizers, because a user can save and access their search history, keeping the information they want for their personal use.

Internet users will be able to delete their search history, or retain it for convenience, in case they want to repeat the search, said Stahl. By default, the search always remains private, and the users search data will not be captured, kept, or sold without the users permission, ever. In the future, Private.me will partner with companies that want to use the technology to minimize their data-handling liabilities, and provide added privacy control options to their customers.
