Pinterest’s First Transparency Report: Only 12 Govt. Data Requests
Following in the footsteps of many other big name web/tech properties, Pinterest published its first transparency report on Friday.
But there’s not much of a comparison between Pinterest’s report and the ones that others have shared in the past couple years.
Here’s the breakdown, in a chart that even I could’ve made:
Pinterest says all 12 of those requests were from inside the U.S. — nothing was requested from international governments. And of those 12, 11 of the requests came from state/local agencies.
Pinterest says it provided at least partial information to the requesting agency in 11 of the 12 cases.
