"UmeNow has a zero tolerance policy on tracking," stated its founder Evelyn Castillo-Bach who is also widely known as Privacy Mom. A statement released today by the former journalist turned tech entrepreneur exemplifies the high expectations she has for her company. "Great transformations that change and improve the lives of billions of people around the world always begin with thinking outside the box. We'd all be riding around in horse and buggies if Carl Benz had not dared to envision motorized transport. UmeNow's vision is a people's network where one is not tracked and where hardcore, powerful privacy features and protections are easy to understand and control. That is what UmeNow has created. It’s a better, safer, powerful people's network that rejects all tracking. UmeNow serves and protects the individual -- not advertisers, data brokers and data mining companies," stated Castillo-Bach who is based in South Florida.
During an hour long radio interview on Friday with Pete Peters of The Boomer and the Babe Network, Castillo-Bach blasted social networking giants for tracking its users.
UmeNow has banned all tracking and all ads. It recently changed its platform to allow anyone to join for free. Previously, free membership was limited to 30 days. Now, free membership has no time limit. UmeNow's 2-tier membership structure promises the same privacy protection to its free members. Premium level members who subscribe for $6.00/ month have access to all site areas.
Evelyn Castillo-Bach is the founder of UmeNow and Collegiate Nation. UmeNow entered into its silent launch in July 2011. Collegiate Nation--also known as GoCNCN.com-- is the first and only private network exclusively for college students. Castillo-Bach was interviewed on the subject of Employers, Schools Checking Your Social Media by Miami television earlier this year.
Both UmeNow and Collegiate Nation are known for fiercely protecting the privacy rights of its members. All ads, third party apps and games are banned because they are back doors to tracking and extracting private information. Castillo-Bach earned her M.S. in 1993 from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. She has traveled extensively in Ethiopia and in the Balkans, accompanying her Danish husband who is a lawyer.
