Opera Privacy Statement Update 2022

Opera, a browser company based out of Oslo, Norway, cares deeply about user security and data protection. With that in mind, we actively work on improving our internal practices and communications with you, our users. 

We are making some changes to our privacy statement and would like to tell you about them. These changes reflect our commitment to GDPR compliance and our continued work to improve your trust in our products. The updated privacy statement goes live on September 1st, 2022.

We made the privacy statement easier to read and structured information about the products most relevant to you. Please note that we will continue to develop our products as we always have, and plan to follow the same strong privacy and security guidelines and standards as before. 

Reading the new Statement

We value and appreciate your trust in us and our products. We know how important it is that you are aware of and understand how we collect and use data across those products. Therefore, the new privacy statement is divided into broader categories of products and services, including Desktop and Mobile Browsers, as well as Websites. Each category has subsections where you can learn about the data collected and used by specific features or for particular purposes within each respective product or service. 

Our goal with this update is to provide a detailed and specific policy so that we can be as transparent as possible without creating misunderstandings through convoluted legal texts. We hope you will be able to navigate to the sections you are most interested in without having to read through pages upon pages of difficult legal language. This new approach offers you a way to read about Opera products and services that you use or want to know more about, and allows us to be much more specific in the policy we share with you. 

We welcome you to read the new privacy statement and familiarize yourself with the document structure. This policy update does not reflect any changes to our data practices, which remain the same as before. Instead, the update is made primarily to create more transparency and establish better communication patterns between you and us. Therefore, we would love to hear from you about our privacy statement update via our feedback form. Also, feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns about the new changes or how we handle user data here at Opera. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this far! Happy Browsing!
