Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

Los Angeles tech public relations firm PMBC Group is pleased to announce a client relationship with Private.me, a new privacy platform that features a free secure Internet search engine and online privacy tools that give users control over their personal data and their digital trail. Through its patent-pending solution, Private.me encrypts and fragments users data and distributes it to a geographically dispersed system of servers so that a users data is not stored in a single location or accessible without the users permission.

Our media public relations campaign for Private.me will utilize media placements in consumer, technology and business press to help educate consumers about protecting their privacy.

Private.mes free Internet search service is unique among existing search anonymizers because it uses a system of servers managed by independent entities, so that no single entity holds all of a users data or can access a users data without a users explicit consent. This system allows a user to save and access their search history, keeping the information they want for their personal reference. In addition to the companys web search service, Private.me offers users a control panel that lets individuals decide what information providers and data marketers can see and for how long.

Through an easy-to-use dashboard, users can grant access to their personal data by a third party on a continual, temporary or blocked basis. This places users in a privileged position between providers and their personal data and prevents user data from being accessed by third-party marketers or unauthorized data collectors.

The team behind the launch of Private.me comprises a prestigious group of data privacy experts including 35-year information security veteran Dr. Stan Stahl who has worked to ensure the security of some of the U.S governments most guarded communications.
