We experienced a malicious, unauthorized data breach of six-year-old documents on an external server that appear to contain personal information of private donors, who we are notifying. We are unable to verify the authenticity of files circulated online.
All Americans have the right to support causes without fear of harassment, and that is why we respect and work to safeguard our supporters’ privacy. The Heritage Foundation has over half-a-million members with diverse views who are united with a passion to advance conservative policies that make life better for all Americans.
Heritage is a nonpartisan research and educational institution and has a longstanding policy that we do not comment on private donor or internal staff communications.
Our internal servers were not part of this breach, and we have taken – and will continue to take – all appropriate steps to ensure that our members have the ability to support public policy organizations free from intimidation.
All the juiciest docs from the recent Heritage Foundation data leak.

The Labor court of Appeals of Buenos Aires (Argentina) issued a new ruling related to labor privacy.
The case started when the company Fischer Argentina installed in all the smart phones of its vendors a software app (called Show position) that allowed the company to monitor the physical location of the employee. The software was monitoring location of the employee even after the end of the work time in the company including weekends.
Several employees sued the company requesting a ruling declaring the illegality of this practice and to have the conditions of the working relationship free of this surveillance.
It’s a tiny black box about the size of a pack of gum that is installed right under the steering wheel. It will allow city officials under a program called “Drive Smart” to collect and access data about how you drive — if you drive like a maniac, or if you’re Mr. or Mrs. Slow Poke.
“It can tell the g-force of hard stopping or hard acceleration and a hard turn,” DOT senior project manager Alex Keating said. “So the driver, as well as the service provider, are able to look at speeds, hard-breaking events, time of day and basic GPS.”
City officials say they’ll use to information to make the streets safer, but drivers can also allow various DOT partners to use the information. Allstate, for example, will give you insurance discounts of 10-30 percent, and Metropia will get you home faster with less congested routes — all of it hooked up to smartphone apps.
