Welcome to our Privacy Policy
Living in a world construed from words, we value both privacy and the right to freedom of speech.
The PHIFER Group has worked closely with international political movements, politicians, leaders of sovereign countries and journalists. We are deeply honored by their confidence and trust.
We take our language services seriously, for communication can influence thoughts and change worlds.

How we protect your data

Using privacy screen filters on laptops, tablets and smart phones (hereforth known as ‘devices’)
Taping over cameras on devices
Removing batteries from mobile devices during private conversations and,
depending on location, not bringing them along with us to the meeting
Locking devices with passwords, not fingerprints
Encrypting devices and files with passwords and YubiKeys
Wiping devices remotely if the occasion arises
in the event of theft or seizure
Encrypting and automatically deleting emails sent via ProtonMail
Encrypting and automatically deleting messages sent via Wickr and Signal, although mobile devices are strongly advised against as a method of secure communication
Running secure Operating Systems (OS) on devices
Using secure locations for meeting & postal mailing

Tips to Maintain Privacy in Communications

1.Encryption is only as safe as the one who holds the keys.
Example: If your laptop is encrypted, but you write down your passwords and keep them near your desk, this is not secure. Trespassers (with or without a search warrant) can easily find and seize your list of hand written passwords.
Likewise, if you use simple or ‘weak’ passwords to lock your devices, these can easily be unlocked by simple guessing or automated cracking.
If you trust Windows Operating System, you may not be fully informed. Take time to read The Intercept’s article on Microsoft saving Windows encryption keys.

2. A man who doesn’t know his rights has none.
Words cannot be unspoken. Make sure you know your rights (not just Miranda, but constitutional and otherwise). Ask for the credentials and identification of any authority attempting to excercize power over you — because it’s important to hold these individuals and institutions accountable.

3. Do your homework
This plays off of the caution listed in #1 above.
For example, if you are a journalist working on an exposé concerning the U.S. government or large corperations closely tied to the U.S. government, you might not want to use the messenger WhatsApp for confidential communication. Although WhatsApp claims end-to-end encryption, the ones holding the encryption keys might be sharing that information with the FBI, NSA or partner intelligence operations.
For evidence of the U.S. government having close relations with tech companies, see the Washington Post news article “Obama’s top national security officials to meet with Silicon Valley CEOs“.
