At Ancestry, we care about privacy. Today we are releasing our second transparency report, which covers law enforcement requests for member data. This report covers requests addressed to all Ancestry sites globally.
Ancestry requires valid legal process in order to produce information about our members. We comply with legitimate requests in accordance with our Guide for Law Enforcement.
As of December 31, 2016, Ancestry has never received a classified request pursuant to the national security laws of the United States or any other country. In other words, Ancestry has not received a National Security Letter or a request under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
