Our Mozilla Privacy Policy and product specific privacy notices describe the purposes for which we process information about you and the categories of information we process. Mozilla does not sell personal data.

Our lawful bases for collecting and processing personal information under the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) include:

  • Legitimate interests: We receive technical and interaction data of users, which may include IP addresses, to customize and offer location specific features, improve the security and reliability of our services and prevent abuse, and to understand where people learn about Firefox. This is further described in the Firefox Privacy Notice.
  • Consent: Where we ask for your consent to process your information, you can always withdraw this consent.

The following rights are granted under the GDPR and California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Mozilla applies these rights to all users of our products, regardless of your location:
