Yahoo! Inc., issued the fourth update to its transparency report, continuing the company's efforts to provide as much information as possible about government requests for users' data and government requests to remove content.
This latest transparency report contains information covering the last six months of 2014 (July 1 – December 31, 2014). This includes National Security Letters (NSLs) and criminal data requests (such as search warrants, court orders, and subpoenas issued in criminal investigations). FISA requests included are from January 1 – June 30, 2014, as they are subject to a six-month delay imposed by the U.S. Government.
Yahoo is focused on protecting user information from unclear, improper, overbroad or unlawful government requests. Yahoo will continue to update its transparency report every six months to promote accountability and transparency.
