Websites Privacy Notice

We care about your privacy. When Mozilla (that's us) collects information about you, our Mozilla Privacy Policy describes how we handle that information.

This privacy notice applies to Mozilla operated websites, which include the domains mozillians.org, mozilla.org, openbadges.org and webmaker.org. This includes, for example, bugzilla.mozilla.org, reps.mozilla.org, careers.mozilla.org, developers.mozilla.org, support.mozilla.org, addons.mozilla.org, and wiki.mozilla.org.

Things you should know

  • Social Media: If you engage with our social media accounts, such as Twitter and Facebook, we may receive personal information about you. If you use these networks, their privacy policies apply, and you are encouraged to read them.

  • Job Applicants: Applicants for employment with Mozilla are required to give us a name, street address, telephone number, email address, and resume. We use this information to process and evaluate employment applications and to communicate with applicants about employment opportunities. We use a third party vendor to assist us with employment applications. For more information on our data practices with third party vendors, see our Mozilla Privacy Policy.

  • Contributors: Volunteering for Mozilla as a community contributor may require Mozilla and others to communicate with you at the email address that you provide in connection to your contribution and to recognize your efforts. If you contribute to Bugzilla, Mozilla Reps, or our code base, then your email address and possibly your name will be publicly available to all internet users. If you create a profile at Mozillians.org, it will be accessible to Mozilla employees and Mozilla contributors. You can edit your profile data at Profile Settings. We sometimes use contributor information from sources (such as Bugzilla) in dashboards to visually share aggregated data on the Mozilla community. An example is https://wiki.mozilla.org/Contribute/Dashboards. If possible, we try to minimize contact information that is publicly displayed.

  • User Feedback: You can provide feedback to us on our products and services on webpages like input.mozilla.org or through channels such as email, Bugzilla, IRC, a social media account, our Get Involved page, or through a group like Student Ambassadors. Please minimize the personal information you choose to share on these forums because your comments may be accessible to the public.


  • Cookies & IP addresses: We use these to enhance functionality of certain products and services. For example, cookies are used to remember your Firefox language preference and Firefox add-ons. They also assist with user sign-in and authentication so you can bypass entering your passwords on websites that use Persona. IP addresses are used to customize content for your specific country.

  • Online Data Tools: We use clear GIFs and web analytics to understand in the aggregate how users engage with our products, services, and communications on our websites, online campaigns, snippets, devices, and other platforms.

  • Third party Services We use third party services provided by Google Analytics and Optimizely. They use cookies, IP addresses, and online data tools in relation to our websites.


  • Cookie History: You can accept or decline individual cookies in your Firefox preferences in the Tools/Options/Privacy history section. Note that certain features of our products and services may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

  • Do Not Track: Mozilla does not track users across third party websites to provide targeted advertising. You can enable Do Not Track in Firefox in the Tools/Options/Privacy section on Tracking. This lets you indicate a preference to third party websites about the way your information is collected and used online.

  • Email: Our marketing communications are optional to receive and you can unsubscribe at any time. You can disable the functionality of clear GIFs by viewing emails from us in “text only” format.

  • Google Analytics: If you do not want data about your visits to Mozilla websites to be collected by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. The add-on keeps your visits anonymous and prohibits data transmission to Google Analytics.

  • Social Media: The social sharing buttons on Mozilla websites are designed not to share data with the social media provider until you specifically click the button.


  • Payment Processing: Mozilla does not receive any financial information, which is transmitted from you to our third party vendors for processing. The name of the third party will be displayed at the time of the transaction. For more information on our data practices with third party vendors, see our Mozilla Privacy Policy.
