Update on the French surveillance law

If you are concerned about the effect the new French surveillance law will have on your privacy, we have some updates for you.

You may have heard that the French government is working on a law similar to the Patriot act in the USA. It's true, and Gandi is working to oppose it, since we feel it is unjustified, unfair, and takes the internet in the wrong direction. We are not alone, and stand with the La Quadrature du Net, and the #NiPigeonsNiEspions movement. Still, despite our efforts, this bad law is progressing towards implementation, and was passed by the French National Assembly on May 5th.

If you are concerned about the effect this will have on your privacy, and the security of the accounts you have at Gandi (and you are right), we have some updates for you.

First off, the law is not in force yet. It is headed for a vote in the French Senate in June, and will then have to pass a review by both the commission mixte paritaire and the Constitutional council. If it survives these challenges, it can then be implemented by decree, or by being published in the government's official journal.

It won't be law until September at the earliest. Therefore, there is time to prepare, and we have been working on ways for you, our concerned customers, to stay informed and ahead of this.
