Asus – Protecting your privacy is our highest priority

Like everyone else I’ve been bombarded with these privacy policy updates lately, and for the most part, I like what I see. However, an email from [redacted]@edm.asus.com explaining how Asus will guard my personal information made me feel less than confident in their ability to do so.

It’s hard to trust a company with your personal information when they still deliver e-mail over non-secure connections in 2018. For a tech company like Asus, it’s just ridiculous.

Relevant email headers:
