Statement omtrent RTL-Z

Wij betreuren de gang van zaken enorm. Veiligheid en privacy zijn vanaf het begin kernwaarden van WeTransfer, het is de basis van het vertrouwen van onze gebruikers in onze service. Dat betekent dat we iedere suggestie dat WeTransfer niet voldoet op dit gebied heel serieus nemen.

Als bedrijf staan wij voor vrijheid van meningsuiting, we staan open voor kritiek en we doen ons best om accuraat, eerlijk en professioneel te reageren. In dit geval is onze jurist veel te snel erbij betrokken, dit had niet mogen gebeuren.

De email met het verzoek het artikel te veranderen of te verwijderen is teruggetrokken, en er is gelukkig een goed gesprek geweest met de journalist.

About WeTransfer

WeTransfer makes beautifully obvious tools that bring ideas to life. Founded in 2009 in Amsterdam as a simple, well-designed file sharing service for the creative community, WeTransfer has grown to include tools that scale across the creative spectrum, including editorial platform WePresent (with over 2M monthly readers), mobile app 'Collect by WeTransfer' (with over 4M monthly users), quick slide-making tool Paste™ (with over 100,000 teams), immersive sketching tool Paper® (with over 25M downloads), and the original web platform with 42M monthly users and over a billion files sent each month.

From the beginning, WeTransfer has prioritized bringing “offline” values - trust, transparency, and ethics - online. This means the leanest data policy possible and tools that don’t distract people from their creative flow. WeTransfer has pioneered a new means of online advertising, resulting in the platform’s full-page wallpapers, designed by our award-winning in-house creative studio. Advertisers include industry-leading brands like Apple, Saint Laurent, Google, Balenciaga, Samsung, Netflix, Adidas, and Squarespace.

Since its founding, WeTransfer has proudly supported the creative communities and given up to 30% of advertising space to support the arts, donating over 5 billion impressions in 2017. Through our ongoing advertising grant program and content platform, WePresent, we have partnered with hundreds of groundbreaking artists and organizations, including Björk, King Krule, FKA twigs, Ryan McGinley, Ami Vitale, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the UN Development Program, the World Wildlife Foundation and the Prince Estate. In 2016, WeTransfer launched the world’s first free Masters of the Arts in design thinking with the University of the Underground and Worldwide FM, the global radio station run by legendary BBC DJ Gilles Peterson.

Following a $25 million investment from Highland Europe in 2015, WeTransfer opened a US office in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, to add to the Amsterdam headquarters. In 2018, WeTransfer acquired popular creative apps Paper® and Paste™ and expanded its US presence to Seattle and New York City.
